PIPE DREAMS (USA, 2011, 40 min.)
Narrated by Daryl Hannah. Directed by Leslie Iwerks.
Across the heartland of America, farmers and landowners are fighting to protect their land, their water, and their livelihood in what has become the most controversial environmental battle in the US today: The Keystone XL Pipeline.
Routed over 1,700 miles from the tar sands of Alberta to the refineries of the Texas Gulf Coast, this pipeline is set to cross the country’s largest freshwater resource, the Ogallala Aquifer, and the fragile Sandhills of Nebraska. A spill along the Keystone XL pipeline's proposed route could threaten the water supply of millions, and pose devastating consequences to human health, livestock, agriculture, and endangered wildlife.
Panel discussion and reception follows the screening. Visit website for details.
