TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH
David Lavallée / Canada / 2016 / 90 ‘ / English

To the Ends of the Earth follows a group of concerned citizens and experts as they bear witness to humanity’s descent further down the “resource pyramid.” At the top of the pyramid, energy is easy to find and cheap. In the middle of the pyramid, resources are more difficult and costly to extract. At the bottom of the pyramid there are resources such as Utah’s oil shale, the economic feasibility of which, despite billions in investments, remains uncertain.

To the Ends of the Earth brings forward the voices of those who not only denounce the rise of extreme energy, but also envision the new world that is taking shape in its stead: a future beyond the resource pyramid, a post-growth economy.

TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH
David Lavallée / Canada / 2016 / 90 ‘ / Anglais

TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH suit un groupe de citoyen.ne.s préoccupé.e.s et d’expert.e.s alors qu’ils et elles sont témoins de la descente de l’humanité vers le fond de la “pyramide des ressources”. Au somment de la pyramide, l’énergie est accessible et abordable. Au centre de celle-ci, les ressources sont plus difficile à extraire et plus coûteuses, alors qu’au fond il ne reste que des ressources semblables au schiste bitumineux de l’Utah, dont la faisabilité et la rentabilité demeurent incertaines malgré l’investissement de milliards de dollars.

Ce documentaire nous présente ceux et celles qui non seulement dénoncent la montée de l’énergie extrême, mais participent aussi à concevoir le nouveau monde qui prendra forme à sa place : un futur qui va au-delà de la pyramide des ressources, une économie d’après croissance énergétique.
