Directed by Alanis Obomsawin | 1993

In 1990, a land dispute between the Mohawk First Nations community and the town of Oka, Quebec—which planned to develop a golf course on Native land—sparked one of the longest and most dramatic standoffs in Canadian history. Documenting both the protests and the Canadian government’s increasingly militaristic response to them at every step of the way, Native filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin creates a stunningly immersive, galvanizing dispatch from the frontlines of the ongoing fight for indigenous rights.

8:45pm: Intro by Lou Cornum, writer and editor for The New Inquiry
