Kanehsatake 270 Years of Resistance
Alanis Obomsawin, 1993, 119 min 15 s

On a July day in 1990, a confrontation propelled Native issues in Kanehsatake and the village of Oka, Quebec, into the international spotlight. Director Alanis Obomsawin spent 78 nerve-wracking days and nights filming the armed stand-off between the Mohawks, the Quebec police and the Canadian army. This powerful documentary takes you right into the action of an age-old Aboriginal struggle. The result is a portrait of the people behind the barricades.

Horrible.

My daughter sat and watched it with me. We have been speaking of hell and she said that this was hell. She feels solidarity with them.
