Michael Premo with Andrew Stern
Water Warriors, 2017
Film, 22 minutes

In rural New Brunswick, Canada an indigenous community and non-native locals have dared to challenge one of today’s most powerful forces: the wildly lucrative oil and gas boom sweeping North America. When a Texas energy company began searching for natural gas, these unlikely warriors united to try to drive out the company --- and the Canadian police --- in an ongoing campaign to protect their land and water. This is an intimate peek behind the scenes of what The Guardian has called "the frontline of a democratic fight."
