â€œKeepers of the Waterâ€ is a short film about a young group of native children in Fort Chipewyan, Canada. Their town sits directly downstream from the Alberta Tar Sands - the most environmentally polluting industrial project in the world. The members of their community are dying of rare forms of cancer, the fish and moose meat have tested positive for highly toxic levels of arsenic, the water is no longer drinkable, and there is no end in sight. On their own initiative, these kids came together to protest this environmental crime.
