GREEDY LYING BASTARDS (Nigeria/Peru/Tuvalu/Uganda/USA, 2012, 90 min.)
A Selection from the 2012 United Nations Association Traveling Film Festival
Welcome by Edward Barrows, Director, Center for the Environment, Georgetown University.
What happens when one industry has too much power? Politicians become pawns. Laws are created, prevented and sometimes broken. Regulations are bypassed. Information is controlled. Dissent is stifled. The climate changes and people die. This film presents a searing indictment of the influence, deceit and corruption that defines the fossil fuel industry. From the Gulf Coast to the tiny nation of Tuvalu, from Nigeria and Uganda to Peru and Alaska, this film documents the impact of an industry that has continually put profits before people, waged a campaign of lies designed to thwart measures on climate change, used its clout to minimize infringing regulations and undermined the political process in the United States and abroad. Directed and produced by Craig Rosebraugh. Executive Producer: Darryl Hannah.
Discussion with Jasmina Bojic, Founder and Executive Director, United Nations Association Film Festival; Edward Barrows, Director, Georgetown University Center for the Environment (CFE), two CFE interns follows screening.
