This film tells a story of young snowboarders and surfers learning the real social and environmental impacts of resource extraction. Through humor, adventure and an evolving critical perspective, Northern Grease depicts the often-untold stories of those on the front lines. The adventure leads the crew to communities on the front lines of resource extraction, from the Alberta tar sands, Canada’s largest growing greenhouse gas emitter, to an Indigenous blockade in the Tl’abāne, an area also commonly known as the Sacred Headwaters.
