Filmmaker David Lavallee brings us up close and personal with shale gas fields, tar sands and the huge pipelines that represent the far edges of resource extraction in the 21st century. What are the consequences of no-holds-barred energy acquisition? What are we doing to the planet and ourselves?
Filled with compelling and vivid footage you won’t see elsewhere, the documentary film To The Ends Of The Earth takes us on a journey to see for ourselves what is happening and what people are doing to fight back. From the frontiers of the Arctic to the Alberta tar plains to our own Colorado River, so-called “unconventional” extractions are shattering boundaries and changing forever the connection between the earth and the lives dependent on it.
