Campbell River chapter screens film about Peace River region

The Peace River region is in north-eastern British Columbia, not far from the border with Alberta.

The Campbell River Mirror reports, “Council of Canadians Campbell River Chapter, Occupy Campbell River and Timberline Earth Club, in association with Cinema Politica, will screen Peace Out – a film by Charles Wilkinson – at North Island College Theater, 1685 Dogwood Street at 7:15 p.m. on Jan. 13.”

As noted by Cinema Politica, “In Canada’s vast Peace River region the mega-projects include a major new dam, tens of thousands of hydro-fracked shale gas wells, a nuclear power plant, and the Tar Sands. …In Peace Out, filmmaker Charles Wilkinson (Down Here, Max), assembles a brilliant cast of specialists who are credible, reasonable, occasionally irreverent, but always extraordinarily well informed on the subject. The film resists pointing a finger at the usual suspects. Instead it probes the deeper causes underlying the symptoms of environmental exploitation.”
