RESIST; The Unist'oten's Call to the Land is a short documentary that was filmed in the summer of 2013 on unceded Wet'suwet'en territory, 1000 km north of Vancouver in northern BC (western Canada) over the duration of the fourth annual Environmental Action Camp, hosted by the Unist’ot’en (C'ihlts'ehkhyu/Big Frog) Clan.
"Four years ago, grassroots members of the Wet'suwet'en people of northern BC learned that oil and gas pipeline projects are planned to cross their territory without their permission. The indigenous leaders of Unis'tot'en Camp began turning away oil and gas company workers over a year ago. The land defenders set up a "soft blockade" to keep out the corporations, and started building a camp and permanent homes in the pipeline route."
