Oil Sands Karaoke

“Here for a good time, not a long time”. Depending on where you stand, you either view Fort McMurray as the great economic engine of Canada, or as everything that’s wrong with our world. But what’s life like for the people who work there? Does the global controversy surrounding their livelihood affect them? Where better a place to get answers than Baileys, a karaoke bar where tar sands workers from all walks of life are preparing for a contest. Not shying away from astonishing shots of the landscape-altering operations, the film helps put a human face on those who call Ft Mac home.
