a doc thats asks questions about oil and its effects on water, and health, and its current global situation here concentrating on a piece of vast land in canada where oil export is big business. a interesting enough doc that tries its best to get to the bottom of issues concerning this, although no, Inconvenient truth or other docs of this kind, its worth the watch if only to introduce you to the situation

Hot on the heels of "Crude", "Dirty Oil" and "Petropolis", this latest bitumentary has assumed some urgency in the wake of the BP oil spill off the Gulf of Mexico, offering renewed pause to consider out (mis)management of the Earth's natural resources, yet risks inducing a form of non-fiction compassion fatigue: haven't we seen this before, we might ask, and then - even if the answer's "well, not exactly, no" - just how many resources are being burnt up bringing these films to the attention of (evidently limited) audiences?... There's one wry footnote, tied to the notion of Canadian selflessness: under the terms of NAFTA, the energy produced will only ever benefit the country's gas-guzzling neighbours to the south. Otherwise, it's more a record of one campaign, designed to offer cold comfort to North American activists, than an essential tool or provocation, as the best of this agit-doc cycle have been - I did wonder what UK audiences were supposed to take away from the film, other than a renewed sense of resignation or a kind of complacency. After all, with two docs in two months on this very region alone, it's clear a close eye is being kept on the tar sands - it's the docs we *aren't* seeing we might, perhaps, be most concerned about.

one of the many reasons why i'm glad i didn't end up choosing a career in oil and gas.

were it not for my stint in pulp and paper, oil sands is where i'd be working right now.... and i think my conscience would be killing me. =(

[29th Atlantic Film Festival]

A documentary on the pollution caused my collection oil from the tar sands in Alberta. Informative but dry.
