Oil & Water [2014] (78 minutes)

Oil & Water is the true story of two boys coming of age as they each confront one of the world's worst toxic disasters. Hugo and David were born on opposite ends of the oil pipeline. Hugo comes to America to fight for the survival of his Cofán tribe in the Ecuadorian Amazon, while David goes to Ecuador to launch the world's first company to certify oil as "fair trade."

Their journeys lead them to explore what could be a more just future, not just for the Cofán, but for all people around the world born with oil beneath their feet.

*Filmmakers Laurel Spellman Smith & Francine Strickwerda will join us remotely for a post-screening Q&A.

WRITERS/DIRECTORS: Laurel Spellman Smith & Francine Strickwerda

What It All Boils Down To [2012] (6:57 minutes)

Armed with firsthand experience of catastrophic damage caused by oil and gas extraction in Ecuador, a former oil industry employee and her neighbors protest a plan to frack for gas in one of the world's most pristine freshwater systems.

*Nathan Bragg, one of the filmmakers, will join us live as part of the post-screening Q&A.

WRITERS/DIRECTORS: Teresa Earle, Gerry Quarton, and Nathan Bragg with grants and technical assistance provided by Yukon Film Society, Yukon Film and Sound Commission, and the National Film Board of Canada.
