Director's statement

Director's statement

After seeing the protests at Standing Rock, myself and the co-producer, Ting Fan, asked ourselves how we could document this in a different way. We then found many stories of pipelines that didn't get the coverage Standing Rock got, dealt with similar issues and had people caring about the land. This was the core of what drove the film: humankind's connection to land. We widened the scope to show that throughout North America there are many instances of tragedy similar to Standing Rock, and we wanted to hear those voices, show those faces, and give light to what was at stake in the end: This Land.
