TENEZ VOTRE PAROLE (en version anglaise)

Première Canadienne en présence de la réalisatrice Martha Stiegman et des principaux protagonistes du film. 

Bande-annonce : https://vimeo.com/71470916

Dans les années 80, Marylynn Poucachiche et Norman Matchewan ont affrontés les gaz lacrymogènes et les matraques policières en accompagnant leurs parents aux barricades, érigées pour défendre le territoire ancestral algonquin de Barriere Lake. Il était alors difficile de prévoir qu’ils se retrouveraient à nouveau au front, vingt ans plus tard, cette fois-ci avec leurs propres enfants. TENEZ VOTRE PAROLE raconte l’histoire d’une petite communauté autochtone dont les rêves et la détermination dépassent de loin la grandeur de leur réserve et fait le portrait, au quotidien, d’une nouvelle génération d’Algonquins et de leur attachement à leur terre, à leur langue et à leurs traditions.

HONOUR YOUR WORD
Canadian premiere with filmmaker Martha Stiegman and Barriere Lake Community spokespeople in attendance.

trailer: https://vimeo.com/71470916

Honour Your Word is an intimate portrait of life behind the barricades for the Algonquins of Barriere Lake, an inspiring First Nation whose dignity and courage contrast sharply with the political injustice they face.

The title refers to their campaign slogan demanding Canada and Quebec honour a precedent-setting conservation deal signed in 1991. Director Martha Stiegman spent four years shooting this poetic, heartfelt documentary that challenges stereotypes of "angry Indians." Honour Your Word juxtaposes starkly contrasting landscapes—the majesty of the bush, a dramatic highway stand-off against a riot squad, daily life within the confines of the reserve—to reveal the spirit of a people for whom blockading has become a part of their way of life, a life rooted in the forest they are defending.
