Wochiigii lo End of the Peace
Tuesday, August 15 - 6 pm
Grande Bibliothèque (Salle de visionnement 4e étage)
Director: Heather Hatch
English with French subtitles
The film, which premiered at the 2021 TIFF, centres on the West Moberly and Prophet River First Nations in British Columbia, and their fight against the Site C hydroelectric dam project. Point of View magazine reviewed it, writing that “Haida director Hatch’s documentary is compelling and tells an important, and infuriating story of corporations and the government causing environmental destruction under the guise of bettering the economy, when it’s actually about political grandstanding. It also adds to the evidence of how First Nations people continue to be the stewards of the land, and how sometimes that brings them through the legal system, or to a protest site.”
