Dartmouth College presents Profit and Loss


Sustainability Salon Movie Screening

Hosted by Terry Tempest Williams. Join Director Toby McLeod for a film screening of PROFIT AND LOSS from the STANDING ON SACRED GROUND film series.

Wednesday, April 8, 2015 7:00pm-8:30pm Loew Auditorium, Black Family Visual Arts Center

From Papua New Guinea rainforests to Canada’s tar sands, Profit and Loss exposes industrial threats to native peoples’ health, livelihood and cultural survival. In Papua New Guinea, a Chinese government owned nickel mine has violently relocated villagers to a taboo sacred mountain, built a new pipeline and refinery on contested clan land, and is dumping mining waste into the sea. In Alberta, First Nations people suffer from rare cancers as their traditional hunting grounds are stripmined to unearth the world’s third-largest oil reserve. Indigenous people tell their own stories—and confront us with the ethical consequences of our culture of consumption

7:00 PM – Film, 8:00 PM – Q&A with Toby McLeod, director

FREE and open to the public. 

Sponsored by the Native American Studies and Environmental Studies Programs
