"[Joyce] Wieland's co-optation of Aboriginal cultures and identities to politicize her work is evident in The Far Shore, her 1976 feature-length film. Wieland imbues one of the main characters, Tom McLeod, with romantic, imagined notions of Indianness in order to warn viewers of ecological damages to the land caused by capitalist exploitation."
