{CANCELED} Film Screening: Unist'ot'en "Invasion" Documentary


The Unist’ot’en Camp has been a beacon of resistance for nearly ten years. It is a healing space for Indigenous people and settlers alike, and an active example of decolonization. The violence, environmental destruction and disregard for human rights following TC Energy (formerly TransCanada) / Coastal GasLink’s interim injunction and the fight for indigenous rights is the focal point of the documentary Invasion.

Invasion is a new film about the Unist’ot’en Camp, Gidimt’en checkpoint and the larger Wet’suwet’en Nation standing up to the Canadian government and corporations who continue colonial violence against Indigenous people. Michael Toledano, Sam Vinal and Franklin Lopez are three filmmakers from different corners of Turtle Island that met while covering the Unist’ot’en Camp. In the summer of 2019 they had an idea: collect all their individual footage of their different visits to the camp into one hard drive (about ten years’ worth), and make a feature film about this inspiring manifestation of Indigenous resistance.

A discussion will follow the film screening.
