‘To the Ends of the Earth’: Screening in Vancouver Soon

Submitted by Tyee Staff, Yesterday

To the Ends of the Earth is a documentary that follows the extreme lengths the energy industry goes to extract oil and gas. It makes a passionate case that this can’t go on forever -- and that the age of fossil fuels has reached its definitive end.

In the documentary, an Inuit mayor realizes that seismic testing for oil in the ocean is blowing up the eardrums of animals they hunt; an environmental lawyer who visits the Alberta tar sands comes to realize the industry is not sustainable; and a Utah river conservationist fights to protect the Colorado River from oil shale projects.

Tyee contributing editor and energy reporter also Andrew Nikiforuk makes an appearance. (If you’re as excited about this as we are, he appears at 0:37 in the trailer above.)

“Economies don’t run on energy. They run on money,” he says.

You can catch a screening of the documentary on Dec. 11 at 7:15 p.m. as part of the Vancouver International Film Festival. Tickets here.
