Peace Out, playing at Toronto's Hot Docs festival!
Peace Out, the award winning documentary hailed by critics as “… not just another environmental movie…”, “a thoughtful, clear-eyed exploration of an issue that always ends in costs, trade-offs, and least-bad options” and “a generously inquisitive film, made with an open mind and a fierce sense of commitment” is coming to Toronto’s Hot Docs Film Festival next week.
Peace Out is the Western Canadian documentary feature that asks and answers the question: are we ripping up our back yard for energy - or not? The film seeks to engage those of us who do not connect our daily decisions with global land use issues. It focuses on the North Western Canadian wilderness, however the issues are universal. The film pits hydroelectricity, shale gas hydro-fracking, nuclear, and Tar Sands executives against world renowned scientists, academics and activists in an intelligent debate that invites the viewer to decide what to believe.
The film presents a beautiful, thought provoking look at a rapidly transforming landscape – British Columbia’s vast Peace River watershed. To read about Sierra Club BC's work in the Peace River Watershed, please visit the following links:
