She received a number of accolades, including an Oscar nomination, for her breakout role as a pregnant teenager in the 2007 Juno film.

But in recent days, Ellen Page has changed roles and went behind the camera as co-director of the tough documentary There Something In The Water.

And on Sunday, she attended the Canadian premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Activist action! Ellen Page, 32, attended the premiere of her new call-to-arms documentary There Something In The Water at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sunday.

In keeping with her usual modus operandi, the 32-year-old star was all about promoting causes that were close to her heart.

This night she put on black fitted pants, black boots and a black t-shirt with the text Reclaim A & # 39; se & # 39; k and the date January 31, 2020.

The shirt refers to the fate of the Pictou Landing First Nation & # 39; s attempt to reclaim the A & # 39; se & # 39; k estuary in Novia Scoti, now called Boat Harbor, which is besieged with pollution and toxins in the water since the construction of a pulp factory in the Area.

Taking a stand: the actress showed one of the problems in the film by wearing a t-shirt with & # 39; Reclaim A & # 39; se & # 39; k & # 39; and the date January 31, 2020 on its front

The call-to-arms issue is one of the so-called controversies surrounding & # 39; ecological racism & # 39; which concern the indigenous Nova Scotia of Page and which are shown in the documentary co-directed by Ian Daniel.

The stories all try to shed light on minorities who have been discriminated against by the environment by having toxic levels of pollution spewed out by rising factories and waste locations near their communities.
