In Yellowknife, the remote capitol of the Northwest Territories of Canada, the town dump is the city’s most popular and notorious man-made attraction, mined by a colorful community of thrifty locals. But the new city administration is determined to see it tamed, and the battle for Yellowknife’s identity is on.

Preceded by Birch Song - directed by Keith Robertson | 18 minutes
