Dir. Alexi Liotti, 2022, 67 min.

A peaceful indigenous-led movement to protect the Ada’itsx/Fairy Creek watershed in the last of British Columbia’s untouched Old Growth forests has become Canada’s largest act of civil disobedience. Named the best environmental film at the 2023 Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival, Rematriation follows concerned citizens exploring the confluence of scientific, cultural, economic and sociopolitical perspectives, as they take a stand to protect the last big trees from being cut down.

Followed by conversation with filmmaker Alexi Liotti and Pacheedaht First Nation Elder Bill Jones.

Presented by the Penn Museum and cosponsored by Penn’s Center for Experimental Ethnography, Cinema & Media Studies Department, Program in the Environmental Humanities, and Wolf Humanities Center.
