Beyond Extinction: A Sinixt Resurgence documents three decades of struggle by the Sinixt, Indigenous people whose traditional territories lie in British Columbia, Canada and Washington State in the USA. This point-of-view film uses observational footage, contemporary interviews, oral histories, survival stories told by matriarchs, personal as well as rare archives, to tell a story never told before. Canadian filmmaker Ali Kazimi, who emigrated from India 40 years ago, journeys with them as they repatriate the remains of ancestors from museums, fight against logging, petition the courts, revive ceremonies, convey oral histories in Snslixcin, their language.
