KONELINE: OUR LAND BEAUTIFUL
Award-winning documentary filmmaker Nettie Wild (A PLACE CALLED CHIAPAS) creates a visually stunning celebration of an extraordinary part of the world, as well as a politically charged examination of the agents of "progress" increasingly encroaching on the pristine landscapes of northern British Columbia. Set in the Tahltan territory, the film explores the various human forces, good and not so good, currently at work in this previously unspoiled environment: there are drilling companies looking for diamonds, construction crews erecting massive transmission towers and indigenous Tahltan people's community elders protesting and debating what is happening on their land.
