The drilling industry is one not typically seen through the big screen. In British Columbia, however, one filmmaker and a unique partner from drilling have developed an opportunity for a deep and productive conversation about the relationship between industry and environment.
"Konelīne: Our Land Beautiful" was produced and directed by Nettie Wild, an independent documentary filmmaker based in Vancouver, British Columbia. Konelīne (pronounced koe-ne-lee-neh) is a Tahltan word that means “our land beautiful.” (The Tahltan are a First Nation people living in northern British Columbia, Canada.) The film portrays a deeply truthful scenario of land being bountiful with natural beauty, while also being in the crosshairs of natural resource development.
