"L'image est connue, mais surprend toujours; de l'eau qui s'enflamme. Voilà exactement ce qui est arrivé aux Lauridsen, une famille exploitant une ferme de bétail et possédant une terre sur laquelle l'entreprise EnCana a foré un puits de gaz de schiste. Après avoir été brûlée sous la douche par l'eau courante en décembre 2005, Fiona Lauridsen s'embarquera dans une entreprise longue de quatre ans pour faire admettre à EnCana, l'un des plus gros exploitant de cette richesse gazière en Amérique du Nord, que sa technique de fracturation des sols a causé une fuite de gaz qui s'est infiltré dans la nappe phréatique de la ferme. Depuis 2005, plus question de boire l'eau du robinet, et encore moins d'en abreuver les vaches, qui devront même être déplacées à plusieurs kilomètres de là afin de trouver une bonne source d'eau potable. Pourtant, dans la ville voisine de Rosebud, tout va pour le mieux dans le meilleur des mondes : EnCana finance de nombreux services publics, dont le très populaire théâtre qui caresse de coûteux projets d'expansion. Qui croire, alors?."

Sauver sa peau( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Qu'y a-t-il dans le gel douche avec lequel on se lave tous les matins? Est-ce vrai que les rouges à lèvres contiennent du plomb? Faut-il se méfier des cosmétiques "naturels"? Depuis quelques années, la composition des produits de beauté soulève de nombreuses inquiétudes. Faut-il craindre nos pots de crème? Phobie du chimique ou menaces bien réelles? Les risques liés aux cosmétiques déchaînent les passions et la controverse. Entre le désir de s'embellir et la peur de s'empoisonner, on ne sait plus quoi penser ni qui croire. Tout en conservant l'esprit critique, ce film documentaire entend dévoiler la face cachée des cosmétiques. Pour tirer la question au clair, notre documentaire nous conduira dans les laboratoires des chercheurs et des compagnies de produits de beauté, dans les officines des pharmaciens, sur le terrain des militants environnementaux, en passant par la plus grande foire de produits de beauté au monde. Nous verrons que les cosmétiques sont l'enjeu d'un débat qui dépasse la simple formulation des produits de beauté. Au-delà de l'enquête qui va se dérouler entre Montréal, Toronto, New York, la Californie et Paris, Sauver sa peau veut réfléchir à l'importance de la beauté dans notre société. Dictature de la beauté imposée par l'industrie, désir d'échapper à soi-même ou quête fondamentale?"--Conteneur
