ABOUT THE FILM:

What would it be like to live alongside one of the shapers of human events, in their youth, before they transformed history? 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 Bill McKibben, puts it, "Anyone who can throw a hatchet and sue you is a force to be reckoned with."

Filmmakers Fiona Rayher and Damien Gillis followed Caleb for four years, capturing hundreds of hours of footage of his development, through law school, sharing knowledge with other Indigenous peoples, speaking to larger and larger audiences, dealing with deep community divisions, and building a movement.

Fractured Land will be preceded by Daniel J. Pierce's new short from his Heartwood Documentary series. www.heartwoodfilm.com

Snacks will be available for purchase.

Suggested Donation: Individuals $10 • Families $20
