Locals Supporting Locals will present the film “White Water Black Gold,” in Penticton tonight (Feb. 27).
The documentary will be shown at the Cannery Theatre, with a discussion slated to follow.
“I wanted to bring awareness to the people of Penticton of the devastation the oil sands are already causing and the damage proposed pipelines could do,” said Kevin Proteau, with Locals Supporting Locals. “It is also in support of Idle No More.”
According to the film’s description, White Water Black Gold is an investigative point-of-view documentary that follows David Lavallee on his three year journey across Western Canada in search of answers about the world’s thirstiest oil industry: the tar sands.
As a mountaineer and hiking guide, Lavallee is on the front lines of climate change, states the description. Over the past 15 years he has worked in the Columbia Icefields of the Canadian Rockies, where he has noticed climate change rendering these landscapes unrecognizable.
The film, narrated by actor Peter Coyote, will be shown at 7 p.m. at the Cannery Theater, 1475 Fairview Road.
Entry is by donation.
