Resource extraction in British Columbia, Canada, has reached all-time highs with the addition of shale-gas fracking across the Canadian province. Tribal communities cope with industrial encroachment, yet at the same time also benefit from the tremendous amount of fossil fuels available. Caleb Behn (Eh-Cho Dene/Dunne-Za/Cree), a young Dene man, finds himself on both sides of the argument. Fractured Land is directed by Damien Gillis and Fiona Rayher.
The screening takes place Saturday, April 21, from 2–4 p.m. in the museum’s lower-level auditorium. A discussion with Behn follows the screening. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
