As the camera swoops over the lofty peaks and rolling waters of northeastern British Columbia’s Peace River region, nature paints a perfect masterpiece. But as Canadians’ appetite for energy continues to grow, resource development megaprojects advance into stretches of unspoiled land, creating destruction of unimaginable proportions. Generously balancing the perspectives of those who celebrate the energy economy with those who lament its impacts, award-winning documentarian Charles Wilkinson assembles a brilliant cast of specialists to weigh in on the tradeoffs. As we round the corner to summer, this beautifully made film offers a timely reflection on the interconnection between our actions and the natural world.
