    Film Director to Speak at Ecofilm
    By Daisy Radigan
    P.O.W.E.R.

    Victoria Lean, Producer, Director and Writer of the award-winning feature documentary, After the Last River, is to be Guest Speaker at the screening on Wednesday, March 22, at the John Elliott Theatre at 7:30. The ecofilm will honour World Water Day 2017.

    Filmed over five years, After the Last River is a point of view (POV) documentary that connects personal stories from Attawapiskat to entwined mining industry agendas and government policies, painting a complex portrait of a territory that is a homeland to some and a profitable new frontier for others. “While my primary interest was initially with the threat of mercury contamination, it expanded to the community’s rights to education, healthcare, housing and a clean and safe environment. One of the goals of the film is to draw attention to a number of intersecting challenges.” Also in attendance will be:
    • Sheri Longboat, PhD Professor, University of Guelph – Water Security for First Nations
    • Cathy Elliott, Mi’kmaq artist / musician
    • Janet Wilson, Author and Illustrator – “Shannen and the Dream for a School”
    • Tauni Sheldon, Inuit – Davis Inlet experience
    • Connie Karlsson – Inuit Outreach Program
    • Janet Kuzniac community rep opposing the proposed Norval Quarry in the Greenbelt Natural Heritage System in North West Brampton.
    • Darlene Green, Halton Hills Library
    • Jennifer Spence, Office of Sustainability
    • Ryan Colwell, Investment Planning Corporation, EcoFilm Sponsor
    • Leslie Adams, P.O.W.E.R.
    Halton Hills EcoFilm Fest 2017 Tickets on site $10. /Adults; $5. /Students.
