SPOIL (Canada, 2011, 44 min.)
Heavy crude oil extraction from the northern Alberta tar sands is arguably one of the world’s most environmentally devastating industries. The proposed Enbridge Gateway pipeline would put one of the planet’s most ecologically sensitive and intact marine ecosystems at risk for a catastrophic oil spill through increased mega tanker traffic. The film documents a 14-day expedition to the Great Bear Rainforest of British Columbia, which called upon seven world-renowned photographers and three videographers to thoroughly document the region’s landscapes, wildlife and culture. Directed and produced by Trip Jennings.
