Description

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.
