Digging In The Dirt is a documentary about the psychological costs of working in Alberta’s oil sands and the mental health crisis that’s been ignored for a decade. 

This film features a dynamic combination of candid statements from men who have extensive lived experience working in Alberta’s oil and gas sector and those who have focused their professional lives around either studying the socio/psychological effects of that industry or providing direct support through outreach.

The insight offered by the synergy of these perspectives makes the film an ideal resource for undergraduate psychology, sociology, or human ecology classes.
