About this Event

Life for the Kwadacha people of northern BC was forever changed when the construction of the W.A.C. Bennett Dam flooded the Peace River, affecting an area the size of France. Decades later the Kwadacha community shares the impact the destruction, displacement, and loss of land had on their culture and heritage; as well as the resilience that underpins the present day community. This screening and discussion with filmmaker Dave Shortt and community member and educator Cathy Warren is an opportunity to learn about the impacts of the Bennett dam megaproject and others like it, including the Site C dam currently under construction.

Doors at 5:30pm, screening at 6:00pm. The screening will be followed by a discussion and light refreshments.
