The Canadian Premier of Déception Durable at Movies That Matter


We are proud to announce that the documentary Déception Durable will be presented at Movies That Matter on February 25 2015. This is the first time the film will be presented outside the province of Québec which me russmakes this our Canadian Premiere. Movies that Matter Foundation, an initiative of,Amnesty International organises wide-ranging film programes in which human rights take center stage.

Movies That Matter is a monthly series of documentary films held at the University of will sebaCalgary, co-presented by the University of Calgary Film Society and the Department of Communication and Culture.

A story of how large-scale resource extraction negatively impacts communities at opposite ends of our country. Having grown up in Fort Assiniboine, Alberta and Sept-Iles, Quebec respectively, my partner and I realized that the same socio-economic effects were found in both the communities affected by the Alberta Oil Sands and the Plan Nord in Quebec.

Once the Plan Nord is completed it will be the second largest industrial project after the Alberta Oil Sands. Mine Arnaud is being presented to the reluctant city of Sept-Iles which is set to be the largest open-pit minemine arnaud poster in Quebec, and was already rejected by the Bureau d’Audiences Publiques sur l’Environnement in February 2014.


Nous sommes fiers d’annoncer que le documentaire sera projeté dans le cadre de « Movies That Matter » à l’Université de Calgary en Alberta. Cette présentation, qui aura lieu le 25 février 2015 serai la première fois que le documentaire est projeté à l’extérieur du Québec et sera donc notre première canadienne. “Movies that Matter” est une initiative d’Amnistie International qui organise un programme de films de grande diversification, ayant tous en commun pourtant, les droits de la personne.

« Movies That Matter » est une série de films documentaires qui a lieu une fois par mois et est présenté par le société de films de l’Université de Calgary et le Departement de Communication et de la Culture.
