Immiscible: The Fight Over Line 5

Project information

Every single day, 23 million gallons of oil pump through 64-year-old old pipelines under the largest source of surface freshwater on the planet. The Great Lakes are a delicate ecosystem and a sanctuary to over 40 million citizens who depend on them for their livelihoods, whether they realize it or not. Immiscible: The Fight Over Line 5 explores the growing tension between water activists and big oil companies. The film features interviews from leading organizations in the fight to decommission Enbridge Line 5 in the Straits of Mackinac, members of indigenous communities at risk, concerned residents, as well as Enbridge Energy’s public response to this conflict.

As Co-Director and Producer of this film, I managed every step of the production process. This film went on to be an official selection of the Traverse City Film Festival.
