Peace Out (2011)
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? In Canada's vast Peace River region the mega-projects include a major new dam, tens of thousands of hydro-fracked shale gas wells, a nuclear power plant, and the Tar Sands. The film seeks to engage those of us who do not connect our daily decisions with global land use issues. While it focuses on the North Western Canadian wilderness, 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.
