Koneline documentary film on Tahltan Nation debuts tonight

Koneline is a documentary film about the Tahltan Nation.

Directed by Genie-award winning filmmaker Nettie Wild, the film documents the confluence of tradition and development.

Without taking sides, she says she wanted to capture the change that’s taking place.

She says she wanted to capture on film the people living on the changing land, adding that both people for and againist industrial development can appreciate the beauty of the film.

Wild talks about some of the tensions within the Tahltan Nation.

She points to their cooperation with the Red Chris Mine, and Alta Gas, but adds they have also drawn a line at where industry cannot go.

Oscar Dennis features prominently in the film, and also worked behind the scenes as a consultant.

He says the film captures all the things that make up the essence of the Tahltan.

The film will be screened tonight in Telegraph Creek at the rec-centre, tomorrow in Dease Lake at the school, and the day after in Iskut, also in the rec-centre.

The film then goes to Whitehorse for the Available Light Film Festival, with plans to eventually have a wider theatrical release.

More information on the film can be found here.
