with director and protagonists in attendance
Room H-110, Concordia University,
1455 de Maisonneuve W.
Monday, December 8, 7 p.m.
Suggested donation $2-5
Following this special double bill screening about women and the
environment, activist and HANDS ON protagonist Jasmine Thomas
will participate in a virtual Q&A.
THE GOOD NEIGHBOUR
An 'ethical' oil company operating in Alberta and their interactions
with local native people in Canada.
Astrid Schau-Larsen / Canada - Norway / 2014 / 59 ' /
English - Norwegian / S.T. English.
THE GOOD NEIGHBOUR takes a closer look at the effect on the local
people living in the area of the Canadian oil sands in Alberta. Through
a young Norwegian woman’s eyes we get an insight into the complicated
industry's navigations between the lack of governmental rules and regulations,
and the violations of First Nation's human rights and their land-based
constitutional rights. Statoil, a major oil company primarily owned by the
Norwegian government (and thus the Norwegian people) has in recent years
expanded its operations well beyond its borders and is now a major
player in oil production in over 40 countries around the world.
HANDS ON - WOMEN, CLIMATE, CHANGE
A film featuring women tackling the issue of climate justice with a focus
on the Canadian Tar Sands.
Multiple Directors / Canada / 2014 / 48 ' /
English - French Norwegian - Cree - Inuktitut - Tamil /
HANDS-ON profiles five women from four continents tackling climate
change through policy, protest, education and innovation.
The film powerfully demonstrates how women are transferring knowledge
and local networks into hands-on strategies.
