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. Director Bryan Hopkins will join us to talk about the aftermath and consequences of a slow-motion disaster that continues to this day.
