At the heart of the multi-billion dollar oil sands industry in Northern Alberta, Dr. John O' Connor's career is jeopardized as he fights for the lives of the aboriginal people living and dying of rare forms of cancer downstream from one of the largest oil operations in the world. Making the short-list for this year's Academy Award® Nominations for best short documentary, Downstream provides an in-depth look at the toll oil sands extraction is potentially taking on the residents of Fort Chipewyan.  A community affected by high rates of unusual cancer, the people of Fort Chip have struggled for years to have their concerns addressed by government and industry. Downstream has raised unprecedented awareness in Canada and the U.S. regarding the environmental and social impacts of the tar sands.  In conjunction with high level members of the NRDC, it is now being viewed by members of the Obama Administration. Following its upcoming Canadian premiere in Edmonton and Calgary March 8th & 9th, it will have its International premiere on Babelgum.com in March 2009. The accompanying feature film, Upstream, is scheduled for release in Summer of 2009. Read more »
