Memory of the Peace


Memory of the Peace


CATALOGUE TEXT
In the Western Canadian oil town of Fort St. John the balance of power between the industry, exploitation of resources and colonisation which goes back to the 19th century culminates in the planned construction of a dam that will flood more than 80 kilometres of the Peace River Valley. To young oil workers it’s a good job opportunity, to Native Canadians it’s the loss of an identity going back thousands of years – and of a landscape which the film shows in stunning images.
