Reel Causes: Screening Of Northern Grease

Northern Grease follows a group of self-described “young, hairy Dudes” on their 6-month, 5,200 kilometer adventure in their vegetable oil powered bus in search of snow, surf, and insights into the industrial, economic and social changes taking place in northern BC and Alberta. Their journey juxtaposes the beauty of snow-covered mountains and remote coastlines with shocking environmental changes wrought by large-scale energy projects in pristine areas of western Canada, and chronicles their mission to understand Canadian resource extraction.
