JOHN DUTTON THEATRE, CALGARY PUBLIC LIBRARY
"To the Ends of the Earth" follows concerned citizens living at the frontiers of extreme oil and gas extraction, bearing witness to a global crossroads. They call for human ingenuity to rebuild society at the end of the fossil fuel era.
Presenting people who are uniquely positioned to watch this global crossroads unfold, the film brings forward the voices of those who not only denounce the rise of extreme energy, but also envision the new world that is taking shape in its stead: a future beyond the resource pyramid, a post-growth economy.

Aaron Foyer is born and raised in Calgary. He graduated from the University of Calgary with Bachelor’s degrees in both geology and a geophysics. He worked for 5 years as a geologist in the Canadian oil and gas industry. In 2015, he moved to Paris to get an MBA and to London where he worked with a company that finance renewable energy projects in Africa. He recently just moved back to Calgary, largely to work on his passion-project ENERGYminute – a project aimed at providing science and substance to the dialogue on the Canadian energy and power industry.
Alexandria Shrake comes from a STEM background, having graduated in 2012 with a BSc majoring in geophysics from the University of Calgary. Alex has a passion for critical reasoning and co-founded an education foundation called ENERGYminute (www.energyminute.ca). In Alex’s career in the oil patch, she develops oil, natural gas, and non-potable water resources on a team, and practices operating in sensitive environments. Alex was accepted into an energy policy leadership program tasked with the question, “How must Canada prepare it’s industries, government, and communities for a prosperous and low emission future?” Through multiple tours across Canada(2017-2018) her team engages with First Nations, energy sectors, and government to learn and write policy recommendation to answer this challenging question. Alex can be found in Banff National park trail running year-round, volunteering for the Canadian Society of Exploration Geophysicists, and in coffee shops in downtown Calgary socializing and working on her passion project ENERGYminute.
