4th Tuesday Films Presents:
White Water Black Gold
A look at the untold costs associated with developing the second largest deposit of oil in the world--the Tar Sands.
White Water, Black Gold follows mountaineer/hiking guide David Lavallee on his three-year journey across western Canada in search of answers about the activities of the world’s thirstiest oil industry: the Tarsands. The film discusses the impacts on water resources, health impacts on first nations people living downstream who are contracting bizarre cancers, the threat this industry poses to multiple river systems; and the dangers posed from the tailings ponds that contain the waste by-products of the process and threaten to pollute the third largest watershed in the world. Additionally, a planned pipeline across British Columbia brings fresh threats to BC Rivers and the Pacific Ocean.
