ARTIFiSHAL is a film about wild rivers and wild fish that explores the high cost—ecological, financial and cultural—of our mistaken belief that engineered solutions can make up for habitat destruction. The film stems from a critical exposé of fish farms to build a much wider and urgent critique of contemporary colonialism, industrial development and environmental catastrophe.

Byron Dueck / Canada / 2018 / 20 ‘ / English

VALLEY OF THE SOUTHERN NORTH is a love letter to the people and wildlife of the Peace Valley. The Site C dam, now under construction, will destroy ancestral territory of the Dunne-Zaa and Cree, violate treaties and displace residents and farmers living along its banks. The film takes an intimate look at this beautiful landscape and those who stand to lose it.
