Screening For The Frontlines

  • Screening For The Frontlines 3380 Lonsdale Ave North Vancouver, BC, V7N 3K2 Coast Salish Territories

This event is being held on unceded Coast Salish Territories.

The Beyond Boarding Veggie Bus is coming back to Vancouver after touring BC and premiering our documentary “Northern Grease”. On the tour some of the Beyond Boarding crew spent time with communities living on the frontlines of proposed industrial development projects. This event is being held to raise money for two of the groups who are resisting such projects, the Unist’ot’en Camp and the Klabona Keepers. 

We are going to be screening “Northern Grease” and selling popcorn and baked goods by donation – all proceeds go directly to frontline indigenous resistance. Some of the Beyond Boarding crew is going to be at the event, including folks who were just up north and who are in the documentary. Entrance to the event is by donation.

Doors open at 7:00pm and the event will begin at 7:30pm. Childcare will be available at the event. 


Northern Grease follows Tamo Campos, John Muirhead and Jasper Snow Rosen as they travel in a vegetable oil fueled bus throughout British Columbia and Alberta. The boys, on a mission to understand Canadian resource extraction projects, visit industrial towns, interview the people involved with and affected by resource extraction, and learn about some of the problems presented by practices like fracking and coal mining.

They find a complex and disturbing landscape, against which environmental stewardship is threatened by misinformation and biased marketing. Along the way, the boys spend time with the people who, using alternative and renewable energy sources, lead lifestyles that present solutions. All in all, Northern Grease tells a story of awareness, criticism, forward thinking and direct action against a backdrop of our country’s beautiful wilderness and fascinating people.
