TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH

The UPEI Environmental Studies Society and Save Our Seas and Shores PEI will present the award-winning feature documentary, To The Ends of the Earth, on

Wednesday, January 11th at 7 p.m. in Room 235 of Robertson Library at UPEI.

Narrated by actress Emma Thompson, “To the Ends of the Earth” takes a critical look at the state of our energy system, giving voice to some of the people whose lives are most deeply affected. For example, the mayor of Clyde River, Nunavat, who is concerned that seismic testing for oil will harm the marine mammals on which his community depends, and a conservationist in Utah fighting to protect the Colorado River from fracking.

Following the screening, David Lavallee, the film's director, will be available for discussion via Skype.

Admission by donation, everyone welcome.

"To the Ends of the Earth" follows concerned citizens living at the frontiers of extreme oil and gas extraction, bearing witness to a global crossroads. They call for human ingenuity to rebuild society at the end of the fossil fuel era. The UPEI Environmental Studies Society and Save Our Seas and Shores PEI are co-hosting the screening of To The Ends of the Earth, a thrice-nominated film. Anyone with an interest in fossil fuels, divestment, and environmentalism, of all ages, are encouraged to attend. David Lavallee- the film's creator- will also be joining us via Skype for discussion after the screening. The exact location is room 235 of UPEI's Robertson Library.
