Narrated by Emma Thompson, this award-winning documentary looks at where we are going to find our oil and gas today – to the ends of the earth – fracking, oil sands, deepwater and unconventional drilling. The film chronicles the rise of extreme energy and a new way forward.
The documentary interviews a variety of people, including a river conservationist in Utah who protects the Colorado River from oil shale projects, an Inuit mayor in the high Arctic who worries that seismic tests affect the animals Inuit people depend on, and an environmental lawyer who examines the economic underpinnings of Alberta’s tar sands.
This documentary is a journey that chronicles the rise of extreme energy, detailing the economic costs of more intensive energy production, and the people and wildlife caught in the crossfire.
