Peace Out
Charles Wilkinson, 2011
Canada | English | 80 minutes

In Canada's vast Peace River region, mega-projects include a major new dam, tens of thousands of hydro-fracked shale gas wells, a nuclear power plant, and the Tar Sands. On the positive side of the ledger, countless jobs are being created, resource revenues are pouring in, and schools and hospitals are staying open. Alternatively, there are credible charges that multi-national corporations are despoiling an area the size of Florida, converting public assets into private fortunes and leaving a wake of Mordor-like destruction. Peace Out resists pointing a finger at the usual suspects. Instead, it probes the deeper causes underlying the symptoms of environmental exploitation.
