March Meat Out: Film Screening - Vegucated! (Alberta Premeire)

Mar 22 2012 - 7:00pm - 10:00pm

Part sociological experiment and part adventure comedy, Vegucated is an award-winning, guerrilla-style documentary that follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks. Lured by tales of weight lost and health regained, they begin to uncover the hidden sides of animal agriculture and soon find themselves risking everything to expose an industry they supported just weeks before. But can their convictions carry them through when times get tough?

Film Screening: White Water | Black Gold

Feb 11 2012 - 7:00pm

Canada is now the #1 supplier of oil to the United States. Most of that oil comes from the tar sands in Alberta, processed by an industry with an insatiable thirst for water.
