Event description

Description

As a part of our Environmental Issues Discussion Series, the Women's Centre of Calgary will be hosting a screening of "To the Ends of the Earth," a film about energy, economic growth, the people caught in the middle. Join us on February 21 for a screening of the film, followed by a short discussion.

To the Ends of the Earth is a feature documentary about the state of our energy system today, and the people showcased in the film are uniquely positioned to watch this global crossroads unfold. We'll hear stories from the mayor of an Inuit village in Canada’s high Arctic, an environmental lawyer who goes on a journey to areas that produce energy in Alberta, and a river conservationist in Utah who works to protect the Colorado River from oil shale projects that would disturb its headwaters. ‘To the Ends of the Earth’ brings forward the voices of those who not only denounce the rise of extreme energy, but also envision the new world that is taking shape in its stead.

After screening the film we will host a short discussion, examining whose voices are heard in this story, whose voices may be missing, and what our reflections are on the complex problems and equally complex solutions presented to us.
