STORIES FROM THE GULF: LIVING WITH THE BP OIL DISASTER


Shown as part of the multi-day, multi-venue Energy Film Series

STORIES FROM THE GULF: LIVING WITH THE BP OIL DISASTER (USA, 2011, 22 min.)

This multi-media project produced by NRDC, StoryCorps, and Bridge the Gulf documents the experiences of those living through America’s worst oil spill catastrophe. The purpose is to let Gulf residents tell their own stories, on their own terms, about lost livelihoods and family traditions, and the long-term damage to the natural resources of the Gulf. It is meant to capture stark testimony about the horrible costs of America’s fossil fuel addiction and to be cathartic for those who tell their stories, as well as for those who listen. Produced by NRDC, StoryCorps and Bridge the Gulf using interviews recorded by StoryCorps.

Introduced by Anthony Clark, NRDC representative. Discussion with Barbara Coffin, Executive Producer, Bell Museum Productions;, Daniel Engstrom, Environmental Scientist;, and Bob Deans, Associate Director of Communications, NRDC and co-author of “In Deep Water: The Anatomy of a Disaster, the Fate of the Gulf, and How to End our Oil Addiction”;, LaTosha Brown, executive director of the Gulf Coast Fund; and Brenda Robichaux, Leader and former Principal Chief of the Houma Nation follows screenings.

Shown with TROUBLED WATERS: A MISSISSIPPI RIVER STORY
