Film Screening & Panel Discussion: “Digging in the Dirt”
Digging in the Dirt (2019) is a powerful documentary on mobility and mental health in Fort McMurrary, AB. Profiling several oil and gas workers, their families, and experts in the field (including OTM Co-Investigator Dr. Sara Dorow), the film explores the benefits and costs of the industry as men share their stories of depression and drug addiction spurred by a toxic mixture of high salaries and machismo work camp culture.
Featuring a discussion with film directors and producers Dylan Rhys Howard and Omar Mouallem, NL Construction Sector Association’s Jackie Manuel, Critical Incident Stress Management for Communities founder Valerie O’Leary, and OTM Co-Investigator Dr. Sara Dorow
