The NFB during COVID-19: read the Commissioner's letter.

The Wake

Directed by John Walker
Produced by John Walker (John Walker Productions Ltd.L), Annette Clarke

Based on Linden MacIntyre’s new non-fiction book, The Wake is inspired by the resilience of a Newfoundland community recovering from a tsunami disaster only to work themselves to death in an underground mine. While politicians give away land rights for pennies to global mining companies and receive praise for creating jobs – desperate workers the world over continue to be exploited where rules and regulations are secondary to economic and industrial imperatives.
