Fossil fuel documentary screened in Chilliwack

New film, To the Ends of the Earth, will be shown in Chilliwack at Cottonwood 4 Cinemas Aug. 29

Director David Lavallée’s new documentary, To the Ends of the Earth, will be shown in Chilliwack for one night.

The film is an exploration of the collapse of fossil fuels and a call to action for the world that will follow. It features interviews with front line Indigenous communities and leading energy thinkers.

Pipelines have been in the news in Chilliwack recently. On the one hand there is growing concern about climate change and on the other, the petroleum industry fighting hard to get their products to markets. Into the mix there’s the decline in oil prices, rapid advances in clean energy and searching questions about jobs.

Increasingly, the industry must use extreme measures to extract petroleum: steam-injection in the oil sands, fracking for natural gas, or drilling in the Arctic. Many Indigenous peoples are left out of resource decisions in their traditional territories.

The documentary will be shown on Monday, Aug. 29 at Cottonwood 4 Cinemas at 7 p.m. Admission is $6.

This event is jointly hosted by Council of Canadians Chilliwack Chapter, PIPE UP Network, The WaterWealth Project, To the Ends of the Earth documentary, and the Wilderness Committee.

After the screening, there will be a Q&A panel with local activists, the filmmaker and Wilderness Committee climate campaigner Peter McCartney.
