This remarkable new documentary focuses on the price we will pay for new energy projects affecting the beautiful landscapes of Peace River Valley and the north western Canadian wilderness. In a very skillful way, Wilkinson interviews all sides of the debate over energy - from nuclear spokesman, First Nation activists, tar sands representatives to climate change experts and scientists. This fascinating debate reveals the dangers to the area wildlife and destruction
of the environment.
“This isn’t just another environmental advocacy film. Peace Out is a beautifully made film, visually dynamic with a great score and evocative, unexpected images of the planet’s energy economy. It’s a thoughtful, clear-eyed exploration of an issue that always ends in costs, trade-offs, and least-bad options."- BENJAMIN ALDRIT, NS NEWS
