Narrated by Academy Award winner, Emma Thompson, To The Ends of the Earth is a feature documentary that examines the rise of extreme energy extraction and its impact on the global environment, economy and local communities. With the fossil fuel industry’s current intensive hunt for unconventional non-renewables, including Arctic drilling and shale gas fracking, To The Ends of the Earth brings forward the voices of a formidable array of scientists, authors and activists who envision a post-growth economic future premised on co-operation, social justice and ecological stewardship. This documentary brings to light our current economical struggle within the fossil fuel industry while exploring the hard-hitting question – can new and unconventional technology usher in an era of renewable energy great enough to fuel our society?
