Wycloff Auditorium, Seattle University (900 Broadway Seattle, WA 98122)
Join Rising Tide Seattle and Puget Soundkeeper for a screening of “Last Rush for the Wild West” at Seattle University
Named as one of “10 Best Eco-Docs of 2014″ by EcoWatch, the documentary exposes the truth about PR Spring, the first commercial tar sands operation proposed in Utah and the nation. This method of fossil fuel extraction which has ravaged tribal lands and poisoned the Athabasca River in Alberta, Canada, now threatens the health of Utahns, the local ecosystem, and the entire Colorado River watershed. Director Jennifer Ekstrom will be on hand to discuss the film.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion on the issue of tar sands extraction both in Canada and Utah; resistance to such projects; the connection of the tar sands to the Pacific Northwest; and what we can do about it.
