EN | Canada | 20 min | 2016

Pictures Don’t Lie is a 20-,minute documentary about a First Nations Elder, JJ Van Bibber and the story of his life in the Yukon Territory.

In Canada’s far north, the Van Bibber family lived on the land, farming, hunting, trapping and fishing. Of mixed heritage, JJ and his partly native family negotiated the middle path. For most of a century, the Van Bibber family thrived in diverse occupations, from fur trapping and gold mining to running logs on the river.
