You’d be hard pressed to find an environmental documentary as perceptive and audacious as “KONELINE: Our Land Beautiful”, Nettie Wild’s visually ravishing examination of the land that holds the Red Chris gold-and-copper mine in northern British Columbia. Following individuals caught between protecting the environment and exploiting it for profit, “KONELINE” analyzes the differences in race and culture that shape alternative understandings of nature and our place within it. Rapturous, awe inspiring and sophisticated, “KONELINE” breaks the pre-conceptions of industrialists and environmentalists alike, allowing its subjects’ points of view to come through with grace and charity.
