2014 – Film International writes about The Good Neigbhour:
”Not one element of Astrid Schau-Larsen’s documentary The Good Neighbour is superfluous. For this and many tangential reasons alone it is appreciable; the 58-minute investigative effort principally concerned with relaying information and opinions as concisely as possible is satisfied with its borderline feature-length running time, sustains an acute focus on the subject, and the camera calls attention to everything but itself. ”
2014 – Review about the Good Neighbour was published in the Canadian magazine Alternatives:
The Good Neighbour: What´s it like to live next door to Norwegian-owned Statoil´s Alberta oil sands operations?
While writing her master’s thesis on Statoil’s social investments, Julie found it difficult to navigate the polarized dialogue surrounding oil sands development. She decided to see first-hand just how good a neighbour Statoil has been, and set out on the roughly 4,500-kilometre trip from Montreal to Alberta in a converted diesel truck that ran on used vegetable oil collected largely from restaurants and diners encountered on the way.
