EN | Canada | 42 min

Produced for CBC Newsworld, Shipyards Lament documents the last days of an historic frontier squatter community on the Whitehorse waterfront that was bulldozed in the late 90's to make way for urban visions. The film centres on Whitehorse photographer, John Hatch and his struggle to re-locate from the cabin and neighbourhood he called home for 30 years.
