Kanehsatake, 270 years of resistance. Obomsawin, A. and National Film Board of Canada. Studio B (Directors). (1993).[Video/DVD] Montreal: NFB.
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.
