Film Synopsis: Fractured Land

Director: Damien Gillis, Fiona Rayher | Countries of production: Canada, New Zealand, United States | Year: 2015 | Length: 78 min
Language: English with English subtitles | Age: 12+ years

Caleb Behn is an inspiring First Nations law graduate, taking on the oil and gas industry to protect his people’s land, water and culture in the wilds of Northern Canada.

From an early age, Caleb witnessed the devastating environmental impact of fossil fuel extraction. The advent of fracking dramatically increased the damage meted upon the land, with trillions of litres of water taken from the rivers, which are indigenous communities’ lifeblood, polluted and pumped underground.

Mixing breath taking cinematography of Northern British Columbia with candid interviews, Fractured Land captures Caleb’s emerging sense of purpose and leadership as he learns that, to save what he values most, he must leave it behind. Arming himself not with hunting gear but with degrees in law and political science, Caleb embarks upon a new journey: to represent his people in the centuries-long battle to protect their land and the very core of their culture.
