    Revisiting: The Line with Anthony Goertz

    Revisiting: The Line with Anthony Goertz

    This episode originally aired on November 23, 2020: At Terra Informa, we've talked trash before. Back in 2017, we even went on a tour of the Edmonton Waste Management Centre. But, one thing we haven't talked about are the people who do the incredibly important job of sorting and processing our garbage. This week at Terra Informa, we interview filmmaker Anthony Goertz about The Line, a film that focuses on the employees of Quality One Training and Support, a program that connects people with barriers to employment including a criminal record, newcomer status, or addictions or mental illnesses with employment opportunities at the Edmonton Waste Management Centre.
    You can watch The Line here online through Vimeo (rent it for $3.00 or buy it for $8.00).

    Revisiting: Resource Extraction and Hope - The Lorax Discussion

    This episode originally aired on August 26, 2021: Are you looking for a story of resource extraction, community, and hope? In this episode, Terra Informers Katherine Rogers, Hannah Cunningham, Elizabeth Dowdell, and Sara Chitsaz discuss Dr. Suess' children's story, The Lorax. The Lorax provides a simplified story of some  impacts of the exploitation of natural resources, and of hope for recovering these resources. Join us as we discuss key takeaways, strengths and weaknesses of The Lorax book (first published in 1971) and film adaptation (released in 2012), and compare it to the current Fairy Creek resource conflict in BC.
