Home / Now Showing / CLEARCUT
CLEARCUT is an unforgettable exploration of Indigenous folklore, newly restored in 4K from the original 35mm answer print. A white lawyer arrives in Northern Ontario to defend Indigenous activists who are blocking a logging company’s clearcut of old growth on their land. A pacifist by nature, and perceiving himself as sympathetic to Indigenous concerns, the lawyer finds his values shaken when he is paired with an angry, rogue Indigenous activist named Arthur (Graham Greene, one of Canada’s most towering and beloved actors). Arthur insists on kidnapping the head of the logging company in the hopes of teaching him the price of his destruction.
