Dark Eden

Oil fuels the economy but fouls the environment. One of the earth's last great oil reserves is located at Fort McMurray in Alberta, Canada. The quest for black gold has drawn people from all over the world to the region

Fort McMurray is one of the world's largest fracking areas. The town is one of the fastest growing cities in North America. There's a lot of money in extracting "black gold" from the oil sands there. But the costs of exploitation are high too. The process of getting oil from tar sands is complex and releases deadly toxins that poison the land, animals and people. This boom town is anything but a paradise! Yet this is the place where director Jasmin Herold found the love of her life, her future co-director Michael Beamish. But soon, Michael became severely ill, and the couple's own nightmare began. 

Two years later, we Herold was still in Fort McMurray, carrying out research in this inhospitable place where winter temperatures average minus 20 degrees Celsius. She was trying to find out how high a price people are willing to pay for a better life. Yet when devastating forest fires struck the region in 2016, Herold and her husband got out. In a poetic style and with disturbing images, this documentary tells their story and the tales of prospectors from all over world who came seeking their fortunes in "black gold."
