This Sunday, Earth Day, marks the 2 year anniversary of the sinking of BP’s Deepwater Horizon drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico. I was co-editor of the documentary, The Big Fix, that investigates the oil spill and exposes the impact on the people and the Gulf.
In the film, we expose the oligarchy that has captured our Democracy and corrupted our governments. We show how that corruption led to the spill itself through lax regulation and how it allowed the spraying of millions of gallons of extremely toxic dispersant to hide the oil and protect the corporations, like BP. Two years later, news stories are coming out all over about the mutations and the collapse of the Gulf fisheries. The Big Fix asks and answers the question, how could this be allowed to happen?
The Big Fix is being distributed as a grass-roots, bottom up, crowd sourcing activist tool. It is screening in over forty locations across the country this Earth Day weekend and beyond.
