Oppositions: Architecture On Film: Offering insights into the role of design in the built environment.
Trouble In The Peace is the story of a growing grassroots revolution
against the multinational energy extraction industry. The film offers an unflinching look into the
dark world of Big Oil and Gas, as told through the eyes of artist-cowboy Karl
Mattson and his four-year-old daughter. When lethal gas leaks cause livestock to
die and locals to fall ill, a series of bombs are set off on the pipelines in
reaction. A $1-million reward is announced for the capture of the pipeline
bomber, which viciously tears the community apart. But
after the dust settles, the surprising and inspiring result is a community
reunited by a common goal
University of Waterloo Architecture professor Lola Sheppard, and Greenpeace activist and University of Toronto professor, Keith Stewart will participate in post-screening Q&As on Tuesday, February 25.
