Kanehsatake: 270 Years of Resistance
In 1990, a historic confrontation propelled Native issues in Kanehsatake and the village of Oka, Québec, into the international spotlight. Director Alanis Obomsawin endures 78 nerve-wracking days and nights filming the armed stand-off between the Mohawks, the provincial police and the Canadian army. This is a portrait of the people behind the barricades.
