On April 20th, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon exploded in the Gulf of
Mexico, killing eleven workers and spewing 200 million barrels of oil
into the ocean. Dirty Energy
gets the inside story from Louisiana
residents themselves—people whose jobs and health are directly impacted
by one of history’s worst environmental disasters—and whose voice
quickly faded from American television screens. The film explores the
human cost of having millions of gallons of oil and toxic dispersant in
the ecosystem, and exposes the management failure of BP and the U.S.
Government in the clean up, which will affect the world’s oceans and
rivers for generations.
