Join the Vancouver Foundation on June 19th for the screening of Klabona Keepers plus a post-screening panel with the Tahltan elders who the documentary follows. FREE.
Please join the Vancouver Foundation on Monday, June 19, at 1pm for a special, invite-only screening of Klabona Keepers, a documentary that happens to be co-directed by one of our colleagues, Tamo Campos.
The Klabona Keepers is a fierce account of the Tahltan Nation’s fight to protect the Klabona Sacred Headwaters from commercial mining. The headwaters are an important natural habitat in northwest BC. The documentary follows the years-long resistance by Indigenous elders and land defenders.
What makes this an extra special screening is that several of the Klabona Keepers who the documentary follows will be joining us on the day for post-screening talkback. We were so delighted to host them.
The Vancouver Foundation look forward to warmly welcoming their guests, getting inspired, and honouring National Indigenous Peoples Day together with you.
