L’eau Est La Vie (Water is life): From Standing Rock to the Swamp

Sam Vinal
Country: 
United States
Year: 
2019

On the banks of Louisiana, fierce Indigenous women are ready to fight—to stop the corporate blacksnake and preserve their way of life. They are risking everything to protect Mother Earth from the predatory fossil fuel companies that seek to poison it.

The film features the organizing work of the Indigenous Women led L’eau Est La Vie Camp who ignited the historic struggle. The film lives at the intersections of Indigenous Sovereignty, Climate Justice, Anti-Capitalism, and Anti-Patriarchy struggles.

INVASION movie poster
INVASION

In this era of “reconciliation”, Indigenous land is still being taken at gunpoint. INVASION is a new film about the Unist’ot’en Camp, Gidimt’en checkpoint and the larger Wet'suwet'en Nation standing up to the Canadian government and corporations who continue colonial violence against Indigenous people.

The Unist’ot’en Camp has been a beacon of resistance for nearly 10 years. It is a healing space for Indigenous people and settlers alike, and an active example of decolonization. The violence, environmental destruction, and disregard for human rights following TC Energy (formerly TransCanada) / Coastal GasLink’s interim injunction has been devastating to bear, but this fight is far from over.
