Bella Coola Valley Arts Council premieres Koneline as film series starts in New Year

Starting January 14, 2017 the Bella Coola Valley Arts Council Film Series will once a month feature movies at the Legion

Starting January 14, 2017 the Bella Coola Valley Arts Council Film Series will once a month feature movies at the Legion from the Toronto International Film Festival. The first offering is KONELĪNE by BC director Nettie Wild. KONELĪNE: our land beautiful is a sensual, cinematic celebration of northwestern British Columbia, and all the dreamers who move across it.

Some hunt on the land. Some mine it. They all love it. Set deep in the traditional territory of the Tahltan First Nation, KONELĪNE captures beauty and complexity as one of Canada’s vast wildernesses undergoes irrevocable change.

Some hunt on the land. Some mine it. They all love it.

An art film with politics, drama, and humour, KONELĪNE: our land beautiful explores different ways of seeing—and being. A guide outfitter swims her horses across the vast Stikine River. The world’s biggest chopper flies 16,000-pound transmission towers over mountaintops. KONELĪNE‘s characters delight while smashing stereotypes: white hunters carry bows and arrows; members of the Tahltan First Nation hunt out of a pickup with high-powered rifles. There are diamond drillers—both Native and white—and elders who blockade them. There’s a Tahltan son struggling to preserve a dying language, and a white guy who sings “North to Alaska ” to his stuffed moose.

KONELĪNE: our land beautiful does not lecture; it surprises with cinematic action and visual poetry. It is a bold experimental film from some of Canada’s leading documentary artists.

Bella Coola Valley Arts Council – Film Series gratefully acknowledges our partnership with Film Circuit, presented by TIFF, and its sponsors.
