Seeking the Current [2011] (86 minutes)

Nicolas Boisclair and Alexis de Gheldere collaborate with renowned Canadian actor Roy Dupuis for this bilingual documentary of passionate environmental advocacy.

Note that this film is in French and English, with English subtitles.

The film is a convincing critique of Hydro Quebec's Romaine River initiativea plan to construct four dams along the 500-kilometre waterway. It's also a story of devolution from social democratic ideals to greed and environmental destructiveness.

Narrated by Dupuis and framed by the filmmakers' 2008 canoe journey down the river, this movie details the history of Quebec's energy industry, the likely environmental costs of the new project and, most constructively, the plethora of alternatives to hydroelectricity. Solar energy, biomass, biogas, energy efficiency, wind and geothermal powerall are thoroughly examined in terms of cost, applicability, and efficiency, and the case for them is overwhelmingly persuasive.

Here's a film that goes well beyond critique to a detailed vision of a better future for the land. The evidence is in the scrupulous research, but the power lies in the filmmakers' journey of dedication, and the beautiful images it produces.

A number of seats have been specifically set aside by the venue for people in wheelchairs or with disabilities and are available upon request.
