Directed by Jessica Johnson, Ryan Ermacora
A former mining town in remote northwest British Columbia, Anyox is now home to mountainous slag piles accumulated as a byproduct of the early 20th century copper smelting process. Anyox depicts the lives of the town’s two sole remaining residents while simultaneously unfolding a complex labour history and a story of immense environmental degradation. Told in six chapters, combining archival material and large format cinematography, Anyox will weave a tapestry of the past and present.
