LOS ANGELES - Jan. 23, 2022 - PRLog -- Scientology Network's Documentary Showcase, the weekly series providing a platform for Independent filmmakers whose goal is to improve society by raising awareness of social, cultural and environmental issues, presents To the Ends of the Earth on January 28, 2022.

Documentary Showcase airs Fridays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Scientology Network.

To the Ends of the Earth focuses on the growing battles between the fossil fuel industry and environmental movements springing up to protest the devastation caused to the environment by the extreme measures used to extract energy.

Narrated by Oscar-winning actress Emma Thompson and directed by David Lavallée, this award-winning environmental documentary follows concerned citizens on the front line, between the collapsing economic growth and the worrying rise of extreme energy—fuel resources that are the most difficult, costly and dangerous to extract. Easily extracted energy resources are dwindling and development of extreme energy escalates.

For citizens who live and depend on the areas that face devastation, or who are concerned with the harmful effects extraction methods have on wildlife and ecosystems, their protests have been met with potential arrest and being labeled "eco-terrorists." Yet the grass-roots resistance against these destructive fossil fuel extraction projects grows and the film makes a strong and compelling case for a sensible transition to cleaner energy sources and a post-growth economy.
