Invasion is a verité cinematic experience about the Unist’ot’en Camp, Gidimt’en checkpoint and the larger Wet’suwet’en Nation standing up to the Canadian government and corporations who continue colonial violence against indigenous peoples, in an effort to extract oil and gas from their lands.

The Unist’ot’en Camp has been a beacon of resistance for nearly 10 years. It is a healing space for indigenous people and settlers alike, and an active example of decolonisation. The violence, environmental destruction, and disregard for human rights following TC Energy (formerly TransCanada) / Coastal GasLink’s interim injunction has been devastating, but this fight is far from over.
