System Details:
A film about indigenous land rights in British Columbia, it examines differences between rural and urban treaties, the Nisga'a Final Agreement and predictions for the future. "In order to create social change I think you must start from a balanced perspective," says Richard Hersley, the film's co-writer and director, "we wanted people to have their voices heard and to begin talking more to each other, that is the only way it will work." Chief negotiators from the province and Canada share equal time with people from First Nations communities in expressing their concerns, hopes and fears for the coming days of treaty making.
Gitxan song performed by Vince Jackson and Lily Jackson; musicians, Laura Crema, Jeff Carness, Noah Drew and Ted Hamilton.
Executive in charge of production, CanWest TV Janice Talbot; research/production assistant, Susan Roy; editor, Matthew Elton.
Special thanks to, Esketemic First Nation, Gitxsan Nation, Wet'suwet'en Nation, Tsimshiam Nation, Musqueam Nation, Nisga'a Nation, Mary Kelly and Clairice McCord.
Funded in part: The British Columbia Treaty Commission, Ministry of Aboriginal Affairs Government of British Columbia, Federal Treaty Negotiations Office, BC/Yukon Region Indian and Northern Affairs, Canada and Musquean Nation.
