Documentary screening: "To the Tar Sands"

September 18, 2008 - 11:00pm to September 19, 2008 - 1:00am

Presented by Edmonton Chapter Canadian Youth Climate Coalition & U of A Greenpeace

'To the Tar Sands' is a documentary film by Jodie Martinson. The film follows a group of nineteen young environmentalists as they cycle over 1300 kilometres northbound across Alberta to witness the impacts of Alberta's tar sands boom firsthand.

They talk to farmers, moms/dads, an urban planner, oil industry workers, the chief of a First Nation community and others along the way. As the kilometers click away, they excavate into their own complicity with Alberta's rues to develop the tar sands.
