Fractured Land + Keepers of the Water
Fractured Land: (CAN, 2015) (80 minutes)

In Fractured Land, we follow Caleb Behn, a young Dene lawyer who may become one of this generation's great leaders, if he can discover how to reconcile the fractures within himself, his community and the world around him, blending modern tools of the law with ancient wisdom. As 350.org founder, Bill McKibben, puts it, "Anyone who can throw a hatchet and sue you is a force to be reckoned with."

Caleb sports a Mohawk and tattoos, hunts moose, and wears a business suit. His father is a devout environmentalist and residential school survivor. His mother is in 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. How does Caleb balance their need for jobs with his sacred duty to defend their territory? He has arrived at a key moment in history, sees the contradictions, and wants to reconcile them.

Keepers of the Water: (CAN,2013) (12.5 minutes)

A lyrical docu-poem about women and water, narrated by Anishinabe poet and storyteller Lenore Keeshig, and featuring Shirley John, an Ojibway elder from Saugeen First Nation. Known as Strong White Buffalo Woman, Shirley has carried water teaching all over Ontario, to Newfoundland, and to Hawaii.

Filmmaker Liz Zetlin joined the Saugeen First Nations Annual Water Walk to Lake Huron and learned how in the Anishinabe tradition, women are responsible for caring for water. Through stories, music and song, Zetlin takes us back to the basics of why water is so important and must be cared for by everyone. As Ojibway healer and water walker Pauline Shirt says: "Everything is water. Everything."
