Storyline

Fractured Land is a coming of age story about a young Aboriginal leader and lawyer, Caleb Behn. His territory is at the epicenter of some of the largest fracking operations on earth. The film follows Caleb as he tries to reconcile the fractures within himself, his community and the world around him, blending modern tools of law with ancient wisdom. As 350.org founder, Bill McKibben, puts it, 'Anyone who can throw a hatchet and sue you is a force to be reckoned with.' But first, Caleb must find peace within himself, and reconcile the fractures within his own heart. Fractured Land provides a powerful Indigenous point of view, about the true complexities of hydrocarbon development, the significance of trust, and the power of vulnerability.

A must see documentary! Deeply troubling but also powerfully inspiring .
13 November 2015 | by marcldemontignySee all my reviews

As with many documentaries about the topic of fracking this one doesn't beat around the bush. There is an excellent story line that takes you on a journey through to the end of the film as you get to know Caleb and the path he walks.

I really enjoyed the cinematography.

After watching this film I felt a deep call to action. Also a re-evaluation of their own lives and how exactly they are an ally to the first nations.

Very well done. If you live in BC or Alberta this film is ultra relevant to you. I give it 10/10 rating.

Bottom line, GO SEE IT!
