Film Producer Charles Wilkinson says he originally went in to making this film with a strong opinion, but after talking to people on both sides of the issue he soon found out he was very ill informed. Now he’s spoken to some of the foremost experts on the subject, and has come away with a much different point of view.
He says that’s the goal of the film: to have people become better informed and to elevate the level of discourse. But don’t worry about being preached at for over an hour; Wilkinson says he’s not an activist and the film’s not a guilt trip.
With that being said, Wilkinson has found the building of the Site C dam to be completely unnecessary.
