Kanehsatake: 270 Years of Resistance documents the resistance of an Indigenous community in Canada against the infringement of its land rights. When a land development for a golf course threatens to disturb traditional burial grounds, residents form a line in front of the construction crews. The confrontation escalates, leading to a bitter 78-day standoff with the Canadian police and army.
