Join us for a special screening of this new film by Academy Award® nominated director Leslie Iwerks followed by panel discussion with the director and special guests. Coming on the heels of the massive protest in DC -- where over 12,000 protesters encircled the White House -- the film explores the threat posed by the Keystone XL pipeline as well as the sustainable alternatives to dirty tar sands oil. Following the screening a panel of experts will discuss what has become the most controversial environmental battle in the U.S. today.
