Multicultural Resource Center's Indigenous Film Series Presents:

CLEARCUT 

Clearcut: After lawyer Peter Maguire (Ron Lea) fails to prevent a logging company from clearing a huge swath of land on an Indian reservation, an embittered Native American man named Arthur (Graham Greene) becomes obsessed with inflicting suffering on the men who allowed his people's land to be abused. With revenge on his mind, Arthur kidnaps Maguire and an executive from the logging company, takes them into the woods, and begins to torture them in ways that echo how he feels they harmed his reservation.
