THE PIPE

As part of the 2015 Environmental Film Festival, the Shaw Library presents, THE PIPE. Rossport is an idyllic Irish coastal town. When Shell Petroleum obtained a lease for nearby natural gas reserves, and the Irish Government refused to help block the construction of a huge pipeline, the people of Rossport fought back. THE PIPE is the 2010, award-winning documentary of their fight. Join us for the film and a discussion with the film-maker on Thursday, March 19 at 3:00 p.m. in the Lower Level Meeting Room. The film runs for 83 minutes.

'The Pipe'

This is the story of a community tragically divided over a pipe that could bring economic prosperity or destruction to a way of life shared for generations. The Pipe is set in a remote and tranquil corner of western Ireland at Broadhaven Bay and the tiny village of Rossport, where 2007 Goldman Environmental Prize winner Willy Corduff has lived his entire life. The unique nature of the coastline, which has sustained generations of farmers and fishermen, has also delivered to Shell Oil the perfect landfall for the Corrib Gas Pipeline.
