CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – The UPEI Environmental Studies Society and Save Our Seas and Shores P.E.I. will present the award-winning feature documentary, “To The Ends of the Earth” tonight at 7 p.m., in Room 235 of the Robertson Library at UPEI.

Narrated by actress Emma Thompson, “To the Ends of the Earth” takes a critical look at the state of our energy system, giving voice to some of the people whose lives are most deeply affected, a news release states.

 “For example, the mayor of Clyde River, Nunavut, who is concerned that seismic testing for oil will harm the marine mammals on which his community depends, and a conservationist in Utah fighting to protect the Colorado River from fracking.”

Following the screening, the film’s creator, David Lavallee, will be available for discussion via Skype.
