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.

Fun Canadian accents
Absolutely blown away. Baffled this isn’t discussed more. Highly encourage you to check this one out, will be watching again soon.
This is one powerful film. Faced with encroaching and seemingly unstoppable destruction, what is the right thing to do? How much violence can be allowed before violence becomes the only response?
gotta watch it
this was brilliant.
