Meet a shaper of human events, a person at the intersection before history is transformed. Fractured Land follows Caleb Behn, a young Dene lawyer who sports a Mohawk and tattoos, hunts moose and wears a business suit. Behn is on the front lines advocating for Indigenous people in the midst of powerful forces, from fracking operations to the government. But he also has an internal battle: Behn's father is a devout environmentalist and residential school survivor, while his mother holds a senior position in the oil and gas industry. His people, at the epicenter of some of the largest fracking operations on earth, are deeply divided. Featuring interviews with Naomi Klein, Wade Davis, Sharleen Wildeman, Thomas Mulcair and more, Fractured Land profiles a dynamic and thoughtful leader with a real challenge to the status quo.
Co-director Fiona Rayher will participate in a post-screening Q&A on January 28.
