The rise of extreme energy, the end of economic growth, the people caught in the middle.
“To the Ends of the Earth” is a feature documentary about the state of our energy system today, and the people we meet are uniquely positioned to watch this global crossroads unfold.  For example, the mayor of an Inuit village in Canada’s high Arctic who is concerned that seismic testing for oil in the ocean is blowing up the eardrums of the animals that the Inuit hunt to survive. Or the environmental lawyer who goes on a journey to areas that produce energy for the Tarsands of Alberta – he learns of the inputs of energy that have to be put into this resource - and the reasons why the second largest oil project in the world is economically unsustainable. Or the river conservationist in Utah who fights to protect the Colorado River from oil shale projects that would disturb its headwaters.
‘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.
