After The Last River
In the shadow of a De Beers diamond mine, the remote community of Attawapiskat lurches from crisis to crisis. Filmed over five years, After the Last River follows Attawapiskat’s journey from obscurity and into the international spotlight during the protests of Idle No More. Filmmaker Vicki Lean connects personal stories of resistance to entwined mining industry agendas and government policies, painting a complex portrait of a territory that is an imperiled homeland to some and a profitable new frontier for others.
