Clearcut

Clearcut

Directed by Ryszard Bugajski

A white lawyer arrives at a remote area in Northern Ontario to defend Indigenous activists who are blocking a logging company's clearcut of old growth on their land. A pacifist by nature, and perceiving himself as sympathetic to Indigenous concerns, he finds his values shaken when he is paired with an angry, rogue Indigenous activist named Arthur - played by one of Canada's most towering and beloved actors, Graham Greene - who insists on kidnapping the head of the logging company to take him deep into the forest - where he hopes to teach him the price of his destruction.

Written by non-natives and my god does it show it. I’d for sure love a remake with indigenous writers. So much potential. Graham was good in it, def a style icon with his wardrobe. Lol

Seen this when it first came out and it’s still amazing and still truthful today. Powerful film.
