Pulp Friction Poster
A free public screening of Ronald Harpelle's latest film, Pulp Friction: People, Places and the Global Economy on Thursday, February 5 at Memorial University's St. John's Campus, Science Building SN 2109 and Grenfell Campus, Room LC 301. The show starts at 7:30 pm.

Pulp Friction explores the intersection of globalization and community in Terrace Bay, Ontario, Kemijärvi, Finland and Fray Bentos, Uruguay. The film focuses on the challenges of communities with a dependence on a single industry as the economic mainstay and on the impact of the global markets on the lives of people at the opposite ends of the earth.

The filmmakers and representatives of the forest sector will participate in a panel discussion following the film.
