WEB DOCUMENTARY (in production)

This interactive web documentary will explore the key debates around the Canadian Oil Sands. Through a series of mini documentaries, interviews, photography and information panels, users will deepen their understanding of the issues and reach their own conclusion to the question that the web doc poses: Are the Oil Sands a curse or a blessing? These video interviews are comprised of a wide range of stakeholders, including politicians, sociologists, activists, First Nations representatives, people working in the industry, and residents. They will address topics such as the environmental impact of the Oil Sands and the role played by the industry in the Canadian economy. The webdoc will also include themed features such as “The Healing Walk” and other multimedia stories about the experiences of people living near oil production sites in the region.
