Patrick Watson and Laurier Lapierre undertake a survey of the extent of water and air pollution in Canada. What they discover provides abundant evidence of our prodigal abuse of precious natural resources. That action is necessary, everyone in the film agrees, but there is less accord as to whether responsibility rests with industry, government, or municipality.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
