The Green Screen – Dirty Energy
Please Join us for “THE GREEN SCREEN” a monthly environmental film series produced by the Charitable Film Network and The Green Project, with support from Press Street.
DIRTY ENERGY by Bryan D. Hopkins
On April 20th, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded off the Gulf of Mexico, killing eleven BP workers and spewing 200 million barrels of oil into the ocean. DIRTY ENERGY brings to light the personal stories of the Louisiana fishermen and local residents directly impacted by the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history. Filmmaker Bryan D. Hopkins gains intimate access to the lives and homes of these people, as they struggle to rebuild their lives and contend with emerging health crises related to the toxic dispersants used to clean up the spill. DIRTY ENERGY paints a poignant portrait of the human cost of the calamity, and the systematic failure by BP and the U.S. Government to effectively and transparently manage the environmental impact. (2012, 95 minutes) Co-hosted with the Louisiana Bucket Brigade. Following the screening there will be a Q&A with filmmaker Bryan D. Hopkins.
