Tomorrow is the 3 year anniversary of the devastating BP Oil Spill. The documentary "Beyond Pollution" explores the causes and effects of the spill and remains essential viewing as the U.S. continues on the road to recovery from the BP disaster.
"Beyond Pollution", narrated by Dean Cain, has been featured in 13 film festivals around the world, nominated for the Cinema for Peace Foundation's International Green Film Award and had won several other awards. The documentary is a firsthand investigation of the catastrophic Deepwater Horizon oil spill that devastated thousands of miles of coastline along the Gulf of Mexico.
After witnessing the havoc wreaked on his hometown and its surrounding areas, director Barker White and a team of emerging filmmakers traveled across the most severely impacted areas of the gulf coast interviewing environmental experts, government authorities, fishermen, scientists, drilling engineers, and key BP contractors in a quest to uncover the truth behind the spill. Beyond Pollution examines the economic impact and health effects of this tragedy on the local communities both in the immediate and long terms, attempting to uncover what really happened, why, and who actually benefited from the largest man-made disaster in America's history.
"Beyond Pollution" is one of four films invited to be showcased in an Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences environmental series earlier this year.
The 3rd anniversary of BP Oil Spill is April 20, 2013. Earth Day is just two days later on April 22, 2013.
