Deep Time (2015)

Directed by Noah Hutton

The oil industry in North Dakota and aliens? There’s no denying the fact that “Deep Time” (Noah Hutton’s follow up to his 2009 documentary feature “Crude Independence,” which also premiered at SXSW) has some serious range, as it explores the recent oil boom in North Dakota. The film focuses on the effect of the fossil fuel business indigenous people in the area — and takes an ethereal (yet dark) look the the future ecology of our planet. (INDIEWIRE)

“Goes beyond a mere environmental-protest film and feels more like an epic end-time poem.”

— Janet Smith, The Georgia Straight

“Artistically and analytically important… challenges us to reconcile the often competing interests of narrative and time.”

— Jonathan Peyton, Antipode
