Peace Out is the story of British Columbia's magnificent Peace River and the true on-the-ground costs of fuelling North America's unrestrained thirst for energy. The film takes an unusually penetrating look at the positions of industry, science, and the activist movement in what has been hailed as ...a thoughtful, clear-eyed exploration of an issue that always ends in costs, trade-offs, and (the) least bad options. This is not just another environmental advocacy film... Wilkinson examines the real benefits vs. the actual costs of a new mega dam, unregulated hydro-fracking, the Peace nuclear proposal, and the Tar Sands. Peace Out is a movie about the true costs of energy. An intelligent debate that leaves the viewer to decide what to believe.
Admirably even-handed...concisely structured and free of alarmist rhetoric. - Adam Nayman, The Grid,Toronto
This isn't just another environmental advocacy film. Peace Out is a beautifully made film, visually dynamic with a great score and evocative, unexpected images of the planet's energy economy. It's a thoughtful, clear-eyed exploration of an issue that always ends in costs, trade-offs, and least-bad options. - Benjamin Aldrit, NS NewsThis is a generously inquisitive film, made with an open mind and a fierce sense of commitment. It's these two qualities that combine to make its conclusion so powerfully convincing. - Vancouver International Film Festival
