Power in Perpetuity

Directed by Sally MacDonald
Canada, 1967 (documentary, 21 minutes, colour, English)

Film Description:
"The development of Canada's water resources is often spectacular in its magnitude. This film describes the harnessing of Churchill Falls in the wilds of Labrador, a controlled drop of 75 m for the eventual output of 7 million hp of hydro-electricity. Some of the work of construction is shown; diagrams illustrate the conception of the whole scheme."
-- National Film Board of Canada (source)
