  • Keepers of the Water nominated for Best Emerging Filmmaker and The Public Award at TIFF 2010
    Thursday September 02nd 2010

    In the Native town of Ft. Chipewyan, Alberta, an incredibly articulate and precocious group of 9 to 12 year-old children came together to protest the Alberta Tar Sands. Their stories come in the shape of the short documentary film, Keepers of the Water, directed by Ayelen Liberona and produced by Joseph Johnson Cami. This combative filmmaking duo seem set on taking up environmental battles. Their feature-documentary, A Grain of Sand (2009), already helped save from privatization the famed Moyenne Island – worth 50 million dollars – which now enjoys a National Park status in the Seychelles. This time, they’re armed with a 4-minute film that explores what drove these children from playground to protest.

That list includes Keira Knightley-Sam Worthington starrer “Last Night” from first-time feature director Massy Tadjedin. “Last Night” — the closing night film at Toronto — was set to have been released by Miramax, but those plans have changed in the wake of Disney’s sale of the specialty label to Ron Tutor and a group of private investors. Sale has yet to close.
