The Co-operative and Dogwoof present H2OIL, the final film in the acclaimed TOXIC FUELS trilogy including DIRTY OIL and PETROPOLIS. All three films take a view in the ecological disaster unfolding in the Canadian Alberta tar sands, with H2OIL specifically tackling the issue of water and the vast amounts needed and wasted in the oil extraction process.
Oil or water, this is the pivotal question raised in this powerful documentary as we explore the stories of those attempting to defend water in Alberta against tar sands exploitation. Unlikely alliances are built and lives are changed as they come up against the largest industrial project in human history. With hope and courage H2OIL tells the story of one of the most significant, and destructive projects of our time.
