In this short experimental documentary, Peter Mettler (The End of Time) shows us the catastrophic effects of industrialization on the Athabasca tar sands oil reserve in Alberta. The extraction of crude oil from beneath the wilderness results in massive damage to the land, air, water and climate. Shot primarily from a helicopter, the film captures a breathtaking, unparalleled view of the world’s largest energy project.
