Thursday January 5, "Suddenly Naked", A humorous film by Anne Wheeler, about two woman writers.
Saturday January 7, "Pipelines, Politics and Democracy".
The expansion of Canada's oil sands industry - one of the most polluting on the planet - represents a huge environmental challenge. And, as this documentary makes clear, when it comes to fossil fuels, political power doesn't always lie where we think is does. From the hallways of Quebec's National Assembly, where parlimentary power resides, to the campaigns waged by environmental defense groups and big media splashes made by some activists, director Olivier D Asselin follows the journeys of four people who adopt a variety of tactics - showing that it is still possible to effect change. Over the course of two years, Asselin documents the growth of an anti-pipeline movement in Quebec that rekindled a sense of collective purpose and solidarity. The result is a film that urges action at a moment in which our planet's fragile ecological balance is threatened by those who embrace economic growth at any cost. Courtesy, Anne Wheeler.
