* The film, Troubled Water has received critical acclaim for its stunning cinematography and powerful message. It has also sparked important conversations about environmental conservation, Indigenous rights, and the impact of pipelines on our communities.

In addition to Nathan Wright, Owner of Herbal Lodge cameo in the film discussing Treaty Rights and Herbalism, Troubled Water features interviews with various experts and community members who share their perspectives on the Line 5 pipeline issue. Through their stories, viewers gain a deeper understanding of the pipeline issue and its potential consequences.

The film takes viewers on a journey through its crystal clear waters, stunning beaches, and rich ecosystems.

Troubled Water inspires us to take action and preserve the beauty of our planet for future generations. So let's come together, raise our voices, and make a positive change for our communities, our environment, and our world. Let's shut down Line 5 once and for all. Together, we can create a better tomorrow for us all.

So don't wait - watch it today and be a part of the change. Let's protect our water, our land, and our future. Together, we can make a difference.
