Koneline Poster Tahltan Premiere

KONELĪNE our land beautiful is a cinematic poem dedicated to the people of the Northwest, who dream and move across a changing land.
Shot on Tahltan Territory, KONELĪNE will have its world premiere in the communities that so generously participated in the filming.
There will be two showings of the 96 minute documentary film:
TELEGRAPH CREEK-Tuesday February 2, 7pm, Rec Centre Tuesday
ISKUT Rec Centre- Thursday Feb 4, 7pm

Set deep in the traditional territory of the Tahltan First Nation,
KONELĪNE: our land beautiful captures beauty and complexity as one of
Canada’s vast wildernesses undergoes irrevocable change. Some people
hunt on the land. Some mine it. They all love it.
This is an art film with politics …and a sense of drama and humour. A guide
outfitter swims her horses across the vast Stikine River. The world’s biggest
chopper flies 16,000-pound transmission towers over mountaintops.
KONELĪNE’s characters delight while smashing stereotypes: white hunters
carry bows and arrows; members of the Tahltan First Nation hunt out of a
Ram Charger with high-powered rifles. There are diamond drillers—both
Native and white—and elders who blockade them. There are First Nations fishing families, a Tahltan son struggling to preserve a dying language, and a guy who sings “North to Alaska” while his stuffed moose gazes on.
