TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH
David Lavallée / Canada / 2016 / 90 ' / English
To the Ends of the Earth follows a group of concerned citizens and experts as they bear witness to humanity’s descent further down the “resource pyramid.” At the top of the pyramid, energy is easy to find and cheap. In the middle of the pyramid, resources are more difficult and costly to extract. At the bottom of the pyramid there are resources such as Utah’s oil shale, the economic feasibility of which, despite billions in investments, remains uncertain.
To the Ends of the Earth brings forward the voices of those who not only denounce the rise of extreme energy, but also envision the new world that is taking shape in its stead: a future beyond the resource pyramid, a post-growth economy.
