Casa Luz opens our Winter Rooftop Film Series with a new Canadian Film, “ End of the Peace River” |
Please join us for this very special evening with Ana Karvonen, Executive Producer and Founder, Reel Girls Media. Inc. Ana will be present at the showing, will introduce the film and will do a Q and A afterwards.
Wochiigii lo: End of the Peace River follows the struggles of Diane Abel and Chief Roland Willson of West Moberly First Nations as they battle the BC government against the construction of a multi-billion-dollar mega-dam along the Peace River (commonly known as Site C Dam). If constructed, it will give way to the extinction of their people’s culture by destroying the land and water they have occupied for over 13,000 years. While crown corporations and political parties collude against their traditional way of life, the desire to fight for their nation is embedded in these two resilient individuals.
