Last Resort is an an exploration of the precedent-setting case which saw the first ever Indigenous freedom of religion challenge before the Supreme Court of Canada. The Ktunaxa Nation in British Columbia's Kootenay region has a deep, spiritual connection to the grizzly bear imbued in nearby Qat'muk mountain. The proposed Jumbo Glacier Ski Resort greatly threatens this religious and spiritual practice. Capturing the hearts and minds of the Ktunaxa Nation, this documentary explores the journey of the First Nation as they push for a final veto on the development. This short film is part of the Hot Docs Canada 150 compilation, In the Name of All Canadians which premiered at the Ted Rogers Hot Docs Cinema in 2018.
The film has since played cities across Canada, has been featured on Air Canada’s En Route film channel and can be found for purchase on iTunes.
