After the Last River

Director: Victoria Lean

Producer: Jade Blair

Release: 2015

Description:
Downstream from a De Beers diamond mine, the remote community of Attawapiskat lurches from crisis to crisis, while facing mounting environmental issues and an inability to directly benefit from resource revenues.

Filmed over five years, After the Last River is a documentary that follows Attawapiskat’s journey from obscurity and into the international spotlight during the protests of Idle No More. Filmmaker Victoria Lean connects personal stories from the First Nation to entwined mining industry agendas and government policies, painting a complex portrait of a territory that is a imperilled homeland to some and a profitable new frontier for others.
