Fractured Lands is an award winning film that will be screened at the Terrace Sportsplex tonight.
The documentary film follows the story of Caleb Behn, an Aboriginal lawyer from northeast BC, described as a man who can throw a hatchet and sue you.
Damien Gillis is the co-director and co-producer of the film, and says Behn’s story is echoed across many of the communities in northern BC.
Gillis says many families and communities are divided when it comes to supporting or opposing LNG development.
Despite the province’s bullish forecast for BC’s LNG industry, Gillis says the province has overpromised.
He points to low LNG market prices, and the reluctance of major projects to finalize an investment decision.
Gillis emphasizes that the film isn’t just an issues or environmental film.
He says the Q&A after the film will be the opportunity delve deeper into the environmental and economic pros and cons of fracking.
Fractured Lands will be screened at the Terrace Sportsplex Banquet Room tonight at 7pm.
Damien Gillis and members of the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition will hold a Q&A after.
Tickets are $12 at the door.
