‘White Water, Black Gold’ is an investigative point-of-view documentary that follows David Lavallee on his three-year journey across western Canada in search of answers about the activities of the world’s thirstiest oil industry: the Tar Sands (just downstream of the eastern foothills of the Rocky Mountains). As a mountaineer and hiking guide, David Lavallee has noticed profound changes over the past 15 years in the Columbia Ice fields of the Canadian Rockies. The idea for the documentary took shape when David discovered that his province was growing in an extremely water-intensive industry downstream of his beloved Ice Fields. Knowing little about the industry, David decided to investigate by starting the three-year journey from ice fields to oil fields. ‘White Water, Black Gold’ follows David as he makes many discoveries: new science that shows water resources will become increasingly scarce (putting this industry at risk); first nations people living downstream are contracting bizarre cancers; the upgrading of this oil threatens multiple river systems across Canada and the tailings ponds containing the waste by-products of the process threaten to befoul the third largest watershed in the world.
