These days the bulk of Americas oil supply comes not from the MiddleEast but from tranquil Canada – and specifically from the aboriginallands of northern Alberta. Leslie Iwerkss impassioned and exhaustivedocumentary examines the effects of this tar-sand exploration. “Youcant have the worlds largest energy project in your backyard withoutmessing up the backyard,” shrugs one local activist. Iwerkss cameraleads us on a tour of the smokestacks, churned earth and poisonedstreams. In under a decade, a slice of forest the size of Florida hasbeen quietly converted into moonscape.
