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.

This is an amazing film. I wish I had known about it much sooner. It is pretty gruesome but within reason of the situation. Growing up very close to a reservation I have heard a lot of the tales and this story seemed to follow some of those legends well. Acting was pretty spot on and the little twist at the end made the whole thing.
