Déception Durable (trailer)

0

A story of how large-scale resource extraction negatively impacts communities at opposite ends of our country. Having grown up in Fort Assiniboine, Alberta and Sept-Iles, Quebec respectively, my partner and I realized that the same socio-economic effects were found in both the communities affected by the Alberta Oil Sands and the Plan Nord in Quebec. An excellent example of guerrilla filmmaking; ours is a self-funded, two-person film crew who travelled by plane, greyhound, bicycle, pick-up and horseback to bring you the untold stories behind industrial development. Our travels took us to the metropolitan centres as well as the villages and farming communities across Alberta and the North Shore of Quebec.

Un film vraiment canadien, Déception Durable est l’histoire bilingue de la façon dont l’extraction des ressources à grande échelle et son impact négatif sur des communautés à des extrémités opposées de notre pays. Ayant grandi à Fort Assiniboine, Alberta et à Sept -Îles, Québec respectivement, William Ray et Michelle Moore, ont réalisé que les mêmes effets socio-économiques ont été trouvés dans les deux communautés touchées par les sables bitumineux de l’Alberta et du Plan Nord au Québec.Une fois que le Plan Nord est terminé, il sera le deuxième plus grand projet industriel après les sables bitumineux de l’Alberta. Mine Arnaud est présentée à la ville réticente de Sept-Îles destinée à devenir la plus grande mine à ciel ouvert au Québec, et a déjà été rejetée par le.

A truly Canadian film, Sustainable Deception is the bilingual story of how large-scale resource extraction negatively impacts communities at opposite ends of our country. Having grown up in Fort Assiniboine, Alberta and Sept-Îles, Quebec respectively, William Ray and Michelle Moore realized that the same socio-economic effects were found in both the communities affected by the Alberta Oil Sands and the Plan Nord in Quebec.

Une fois que le Plan Nord est terminé, il sera le deuxième plus grand projet industriel après les sables bitumineux de l’Alberta. Mine Arnaud est présentée à la ville réticente de Sept-Îles destinée à devenir la plus grande mine à ciel ouvert au Québec, et a déjà été rejetée par le Bureau d’audiences publiques sur l’Environnement en février 2014.

Once the Plan Nord is completed it will be the second largest industrial project after the Alberta Oil Sands. Mine Arnaud is being presented to the reluctant city of Sept-Iles which is set to be the largest open-pit mine in Quebec, and was already rejected by the Bureau d’Audiences Publiques sur l’Environnement in February 2014.

Un excellent exemple de cinéma guérilla; autofinancé par l’équipe binôme qui a voyagé par avion, autobus, vélo, camionnette et même à cheval, afin de vous rapporter les histoires inédites derrière le développement industriel. Leur voyages les ont emmenés dans des centres métropolitains, dans des villages et des communautés agricoles de l’Alberta et de la Côte-Nord du Québec. Leur espoir est que les sables bitumineux, serve de mise en garde afin que les Québécois puissent envisager un avenir de développement durable véritable.

Films For Action is a library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Over the last 15 years, we've reviewed and curated over 1,000 free documentaries and 4,000 short films, plus over 150 pay-per-view documentaries, spanning 34 topics related to changing the world.

During this time we've been able to reach tens of millions of people - not by owning a TV network or spending truckloads of cash on advertising, but because millions of awesome people keep sharing 'films for action' with their friends on social media - in particular, our 850,000 supporters on Facebook and 70,000 site members. 

One of the coolest things is, thanks to our patrons, our library is ad-free and 100% supported by member donations. The Pay-Per-View films on our site, of course, help support the filmmakers, and 90-100% of the revenue for PPV films hosted by us goes to the filmmakers. 

To thank our $5/mo patron subscribers, we partner with filmmakers to provide access to a growing number of films that are unavailable for free. With just 29 highly-curated films at the moment, it's basically a mini "Netflix for world changers," but its main function is to support the library as a whole, which is 99% free and always will be.

Want to become a patron? Subscribe here. You can cancel or pause your subscription at any time.

If you'd like to know more, want to help out, or you're a filmmaker or distributor looking to collaborate, drop us a line via our contact page. 

You're also welcome and encouraged to submit videos directly to our library. Just click +Add Video at the top of the site and paste the video URL to get started. We share our favorite submissions with our fans on social media and feature them more prominently on the site.
