Directed by acclaimed documentary filmmaker Nettie Wild, Koneline traces the many different perspectives on the development of the Red Chris Mine in northern British Columbia. In particular, the film focuses on the perspective of the Tahlton First Nation as its people struggle to come to terms with the implications of mining for “our land beautiful.” Praised by critics, Koneline has won multiple awards, including Available Light Film Festival 2016 Audience Choice for Best Canadian Documentary, CSC Robert Brooks Award for Best Cinematography (Van Royko), Hot Docs 2016 Best Canadian Feature Documentary. This free screening is the Newfoundland premier of the film and everyone is welcome.
