When their wildlife, lands and waters were contaminated by military, mining and municipal waster, the indigenous nations of the Yukon River basin in Canada and Alaska joined forces to protect and heal the watershed. A team of filmmakers followed their journey, which resulted in a series of films including “We Live by the River,” the fourth in the series.
“We Live by the River” premieres in Toronto at the world’s largest environmental film festival, Planet in Focus, on Saturday, October 16, 2010 at 5:45 pm at the Al Green Theatre. Moviegoers are invited to join ACF Board member Faon O’Connor after the screening for a Q&A session. ACF grantee Yukon River Inter-Tribal Watershed Council as well as the EPA helped to fund the production.
