From acclaimed filmmaker Julia Ivanova (Family Portrait in Black and White, ALFF 2012), comes an unflinchingly honest portrait of a new generation of youth: diverse, ambitious, and driven by the seductive lure of big cash and the lifestyle it buys. The film follows six young Canadians, including refugees from the Middle East and Africa, who come to Fort McMurray, a city of immense sky and dusty winds. Shot over several years, Limit Is the Sky follows the hopeful young workers as they do their best to join the ranks of the highly paid oil-field labourers who’ve made “Fort Mac” a boomtown. But what happens when the boomtown goes bust, and a wildfire known as “the beast” comes to call?
