Sunday Series – Peace River Country
in the Extraspace
Screening of the film Wiebo’s War created by David York. Wiebo’s War is a feature documentary that tells the story of a man’s epic battle with the oil and gas industry. In the 1990s, natural gas wells were drilled near the home of Reverend Wiebo Ludwig and his clan in Alberta. Soon after, livestock began to die, and the Christian community started experiencing health problems, including a series of miscarriages. After 5 years of being ignored by the oil and gas industry, Ludwig decided to fight for his land and his family’s survival.
Sunday Series events invite audiences to consider the artistry of play creation, and discuss pressing issues relevant to the plays in our season through films, staged readings, panel discussions, and public forums. The event is free and RSVP is not required.
