CREE HUNTERS OF MISTASSINI

Canada, 1974 (MIFF 1975)

Director: Boyce Richardson, Tony Ianuzielo

Canada's huge James Bay power project creates a conflict between the hunting culture in the area, and the white technical culture which would become dominant there. The film shows the Cree hunters' and trappers' way of living with the land, reflecting not only their complex and subtle religious beliefs, but also a complete set of ecological principles.
