Here’s a bit more info:
Peace Out asks and attempts to answer the question: are we ripping up our back yard for energy – or not? The film seeks to engage with those of us who do not connect our daily decisions with global land use issues. It focuses on the northwestern Canadian wilderness; however, the issues are universal. The film listens without judgement to energy company executives, oil sands representatives, nuclear spokesmen as well as scientists, academics and activists. It is an intelligent debate that recognizes economic and political reality as well as the longer term issues.

It avoids the ‘good guy vs bad guy’ approach that much of the discussion often defaults to. Peace Out leaves it to the viewer to decide what to believe.

The film presents a beautiful, thought provoking look at a rapidly
transforming landscape.

Hope to see you there.
