Blockadia Rising: Voices of the Tar Sands Blockade

This hour long documentary film which was written and directed by Garrett Graham in collaboration with the Tar Sands Blockade demonstrates how in 2012, landowners and environmental activists from all over Texas came together in a bid to prevent a proposed oil pipeline from being built, it features exclusive footage that was filmed by the protestors themselves and demonstrates the true hazards and damage being done due to the construction of such a pipeline.

The pipeline itself is being built in order to transport tar sands oil from Alberta Canada to the existing refineries located near the Gulf of Mexico. We also discover the wide range of risks and hazards involved in completing a project as large as this one.
