On a July day in 1990, a confrontation propelled Mohawk issues in Kanehsatake and the village of Oka, Quebec, into the international spotlight. Renowned director Alanis Obomsawin spent 78 intense 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 the long running Mohawk struggle to protect their traditional lands known as the Pines. The result is a portrait of the people behind the barricades through the Abenaki filmmaker eyes.
