“The Tahltan First Nation land is one of the most stunningly beautiful places on earth. But the mine represents an economic lifeline. It’s that tension, and that beautiful natural backdrop, that’s explored in a new documentary film, Koneline: Our Land Beautiful, by Canadian filmmaker Nettie Wild.
Wild is known for her work documenting politically fraught stories, from addiction in the downtown east side of Vancouver, to the Zapatista Movement in Mexico. But with this film, she says she wanted to create a cinematic poem — one that represents all the people who live and work on the land. Wild hopes people watching the film can experience the beauty that might otherwise be written off.”
