October 13 – 7pm
Caleb Behn in attendance
PAVED Arts is proud to present FRACTURED LAND in cooperation with the ICCC.
This Hot Docs festival Top 10 Audience favourite has been touring festivals across the country, and we are very excited to bring the documentary to Saskatoon. Caleb Behn, the subject of the documentary, will be in attendance for a post-screening Q&A.
“Deep down we’re all fractured,” an oil and gas representative tells young Aboriginal leader and lawyer Caleb Behn. Behn knows that feeling all too well, as he struggles with the role he’ll play in protecting his territory in northern British Columbia, currently under siege from some of the world’s largest natural gas operations. The troubling reality is that the same industry threatening traditional practices and livelihoods is also responsible for giving his parents jobs that provided him with his lifestyle and education. Whether hunting beaver, throwing hatchets or studying legal briefs, the burden of leadership is visible in Behn, as he knows others are looking to him for a better future. Following him from the pristine North to downtown Vancouver and a fracked territory in New Zealand, Fractured Land provides optimism and empowerment toward issues that can seem dire and insurmountable.
