Peace Out, Charles Wilkinson's hot new documentary on the ultimate costs of resource development in the Peace region of northeastern BC and Alberta has just won the award for the Most Popular Canadian Documentary Feature Film at the closing gala of the Vancouver International Film Festival. .In response to popular demand, Festival organizers added a fourth screening of the film on Saturday, October 15th at 4:30 p.m. at the Vancity Theatre.
From the Georgia Straight: "Saanich South NDP MLA Lana Popham and SFU economist Mark Jaccard are interviewed, as are numerous locals in the affected flood areas around Bear Flat, close to Fort St. John. And of course, there are proponents, and Wilkinson gives everyone a voice. 'The thing about this is it’s not a finger-pointing exercise; it’s a fairly centrist discussion,' Wilkinson said of the movie. Beyond that, he said that Peace Out is a dispassionate look at the major energy sources here in Western Canada. His vested interest is to have cheap energy in a way that won’t lead his as-yet-unborn grandchildren to hate him."
