One year since the Deepwater Horizon exploded, killing eleven workers and unleashing an unprecedented release of crude oil into the Gulf, BP's deepwater drilling disaster is far from over. Ongoing series by the Gulf Restoration Network documenting the environmental and community impacts of the BP disaster. Narrated by Academy award winning actor Tim Robbins. Take action to support the Gulf now at http://bpdrillingdisaster.org
Despite promises to make the region whole, BP's oil remains in the marsh of the Gulf, and troubling signs of ecological impacts are easily discerned.
Featuring interviews with Patty Whitney (BISCO), Angel Truong (Asian Americans for Change), Latosha Brown (Gulf Coast Fund) and Derrick Evans (Turkey Creek Community Initiatives.
Featuring music from Paul Sanchez, Alexis Marceaux, and Milk.
Written and directed by Aaron Viles, Edited by Gino Kalkanoglu (NOLA Image Works), Produced by Jared Serigné.
