Film Screening & Discussion— White Water, Black Gold

Mar 21 2012 - 1:00am to 3:00am

White Water, Black Gold is a jarring new documentary film on the tar sands following Director David Lavallee as he journeys down the Athabasca River and across western Canada in search of answers about the battle between water and oil.
