Northern Grease comes to Naramata
The Centre at Naramata will host a public screening of the Beyond Boarding environmental documentary, "Northern Grease," on Feb. 27.
Jim Simpson, director of strategic partnerships and development at the centre, learned of the project and reached out to the documentary filmmakers.
"We're excited to partner with Beyond Boarding in bringing this documentary to the Okanagan," he said.
"Northern Grease" follows three snowboarders on a six month journey through northern Alberta and British Columbia into communities that are increasingly at risk with every development resource project.
The film is part of Beyond Boarding's Northern BC project, which aims to raise the profile and awareness of harmful industrial projects and their impacts.
"We hold a shared belief in the importance of environmental stewardship and engaging our community in conversation about issues that affect us all," said Simpson. "It's part of our goal at the centre to create a space for public dialogue by hosting the screening of a documentary like "Northern Grease."
The centre will show the documentary at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 27 in McLaren Hall, 3375 Third Street in Naramata.
Admission is by donation in support of the filmmakers.
