Join the Chris Hsiung Producer and Director of "Elder in the Making" for his follow-up feature film Fox Chaser (produced by Chris Hsiung, directed by Rio Mitchell). This documentary follows a young Cree trapper, Robert Grandjambe Jr. as he chases his dream to live and work on the trapline. But 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. Audiences will be treated to a viewing of the film followed by a Q&A with Chris Hsiung.
