NUUF to show 'Dirty Oil' Sept. 14 in Nisswa

Northwoods Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will show film “Dirty Oil” at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 14, at the Nisswa Community Children’s Library at Nisswa School.

This film is about the development of the tar sands and their exploitation for oil in Alberta, Canada, and its effects on the native people of the region, economically, environmentally, culturally and on their health.

The film, by Leslie Iwerks, was featured at the Sundance Film Festival. The filmmakers journey to both sides of the border to see the toll this “black gold rush, fueled by American addiction to oil, is taking on our planet.”

All are invited; a potluck lunch will follow. A second meeting is planned for Sept. 28 for followup discussion.
