The Pipeline Project
By Sebastien Archibald, Kevin Loring and Quelemia Sparrow
Peak oil, First Nations land claims, and climate change are all explored with humour and empathy in this timely, personal account of the ongoing battles over pipelines. The Pipeline Project brings three people together – two Indigenous and one white – to confront prejudices, while wrestling with their own fossil fuel dependency, cultural heritage and first world privilege.
A provocative yet comedic take on the political conflicts surrounding Canada’s oil industry.
