  • Rocks at Whiskey Trench

    2000. Canada. Written and directed by Alanis Obomsawin. Narrated by Obomsawin. In August of 1990, a convoy of seventy-five cars filled with women, children, and elders left the Mohawk community of Kahnawake in anticipation of an advance by the Canadian army. As they crossed Montreal's Mercier Bridge, their vehicles were pelted with rocks by an angry mob. Rocks at Whiskey Trench, the fourth film in the director's series on the 1990 Mohawk rebellions, reveals the history of Kahnawake and examines the appropriation of more than two thirds of Mohawk land over the last three hundred years. 105 min.
