Pipelines, Power and Democracy

Pipelines, Power and Democracy

| 1 h 28 min

Pipelines, Power and Democracy is a striking documentary that follows the mobilization of ordinary people to thwart the ambitions of oil companies and halt, even if only temporarily, the advance of pipelines across Quebec. In the process, the film offers a sharp reminder that power can be accessible to all.

This film deals with mature subject matter. Viewer discretion is advised
