Indigenous Traditions and Ecology Film Summary:

Screening of the documentary "Power"

"Power," a film by Magnus Isacsson and Glen Salzman, follows the inside story of the Cree's battle to stop the Great Whale project. With unprecedented access to sensitive strategy meetings, confidential talks between leaders and private moments among the Cree, the filmmakers offer a compelling, behind-the-scenes account of one of the most important environmental and human rights battles of our times. The film follows the Cree campaign through good times and bad, documenting internal dissension and conflicts among the Cree as well as their successes in the fight against Hydro.
