Film Screening & Discussion— White Water, Black Gold

Mar 21 2012 - 1:00am to 3:00am

White Water, Black Gold is a jarring new documentary film on the tar sands following Director David Lavallee as he journeys down the Athabasca River and across western Canada in search of answers about the battle between water and oil. The film follows an imaginary drop of water, and later an imaginary drop of oil, unveiling the threats the tar sands pose to the third largest watershed in the world and two separate oceans. White Water, Black Gold is a film about the inextricable link between water and oil in our modern world. Read more about Film Screening & Discussion— White Water, Black Gold

Canada is now the #1 supplier of oil to the United States. Most of that oil comes from the tar sands in Alberta, processed by an industry with an insatiable thirst for water. Following the journey taken by a drop of water from Mount Snow Dome in the Columbia Icefield to Lake Athabasca, and exploring what happens to it along the way, filmmaker David Lavallee asks: “Are the powers that be turning the truth into a liquid that slides through your fingers?” Read more about Film Screening: White Water | Black Gold
