About Fractured Land:
Meet a shaper of human events, a person at the intersection before history is transformed. Fractured Land is a coming of age story about a young Aboriginal leader and lawyer, Caleb Behn. His territory, in northeeastern BC, is at the epicenter of some of the largest fracking operations on earth. The film follows Caleb as he tries to reconcile the fractures within himself, his community and the world around him, blending modern tools of 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.’ But first, Caleb must find peace within himself, and reconcile the fractures within his own heart. Fractured Land provides a powerful Indigenous point of view, about the true complexities of hydrocarbon development, the significance of trust, and the power of vulnerability.
This award-winning film by Vancouver filmmakers Fiona Rayher and Damien Gillis, features interviews with Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, Josh Fox, Wade Davis, Maude Barlow, Sharleen Wildeman, Thomas Mulcair and more, Fractured Land profiles a dynamic and thoughtful leader with a real challenge to the status quo.
