“Oil Sands Karaoke looks at the mining operations around the booming city of Fort McMurray, using long landscape shots and aerial footage of enormous trucks traversing the raw, bare earth carrying bitumen from shovels to crushers. But Charles Wilkinson’s second film about Canada’s controversial oil reserves mostly focuses on the little humans that operate the machines and their lives off the clock.

“These characters know what they do isn’t pretty, but they also resent the criticisms of a society that relies so heavily on oil. Consequently, the film is not specifically about government policy, the economy or even the environment, and it doesn’t preach or prescribe. It simply offers the sincere perspectives of the people working in Fort Mac. So much of the conversation about the industry ignores these voices, with their mix of quiet doubts and resignation.

“These characters are not idealistic, but they’ve all kept at least one dream alive. This isn’t the song they wrote for their lives. For now, they’re just singing along to someone else’s tunes.” Ben Williamson, A\J
