11 Nov Fox Chaser
In the harsh winters of Northern Alberta, a young man struggles to protect his childhood dream of living on the trapline against his changing world.
Robert Grandjambe Jr. has spent his life on the trapline, learning from his mother, father and grandfather, and growing into the bushman he dreamed of being as a child. With encroaching industrial development and increasing family obligations, this may be his last chance to live his passion in the freedom of the wild.
In the remote village of Fort Chipewyan, food security is scarce, and living off the land has always been important. As more and more people leave the bush for the city, a trapper’s life becomes increasingly isolated. Robert’s family questions the choices he is making. Nevertheless, as he witnesses the mounting stresses put on the land to feed and power our growing cities, he is determined to continue living amongst the natural world he loves.
