Storyline

In the shadow of a De Beers diamond mine, a remote indigenous community lurches from crisis to crisis, as their homeland transforms into a modern frontier. Rosie Koostachin delivers donations to families who live in uninsulated sheds, overgrown with toxic mold. She is determined to raise awareness, believing that if only Canadians knew, her hometown's dire situation would improve. Over five years, filmmaker Victoria Lean follows Attawapiskat's journey from obscurity and into the international spotlight twice - first when the Red Cross intervenes and again during the protest movement, Idle No More. Weaving together great distances, intimate scenes and archive images, the documentary chronicles the First Nation's fight for justice in the face of hardened indifference.

A Must See!
7 April 2016 | by czuberSee all my reviews

I was fortunate enough to see 'After the Last River' at the Cinefest Sudbury Film Festival last fall. It is an eye-opener! A must see for all. I had so many misconceptions that were blown apart with this film. I am better informed today thanks to this film. The mining industry and government have a lot to answer for. See for yourself. Ask your local theater to run this film. I encourage everyone to go with an open mind. Just the facts, thank you. I wish the Aboriginal communities across this country get the assistance they need; legal and financial and medical and schooling and ... This film has stayed with me. To the point of me writing our government with my concerns, and suggestions on how to help.
