Indigenous Communities at the Frontlines of Climate Change & Fossil Fuel Extraction
Film by Paper Rocket Productions
Produced by the Livelihoods Knowledge Exchange Network
A powerful documentary exploring the challenges of Native Americans and other frontline communities living in proximity to fossil fuel extraction in the United States. The film follows 24 Indigenous community organizers and allies as they caravan across the lower 48 on the 2016 Protect Our Public Lands Tour For a Just and Renewable Energy Future. As the caravan winds its way across the US, the film introduces audiences to an array of environmental and human rights challenges through interactions with the Indigenous communities that bear the brunt of the health and pollution impacts of oil, gas, and coal projects.
Ideal for educational, activist, and general audiences alike, PROTECT provides a platform for facilitating sharing and solidarity across cultures, generations, communities, and nations.
