FILM: CRUDE: The Real Price of Oil




12.00-1.45pm (Bring your own lunch)

Series: Green City Week

CRUDE is an award-winning documentary film that chronicles the epic battle to hold oil giant Chevron (formerly Texaco) accountable for its systematic contamination of the Ecuadorian Amazon – an environmental tragedy experts call "the Rainforest Chernobyl.”

CRUDE director Joe Berlinger finds himself under attack from Chevron, which has dragged him into court to demand that he turn over all 600+ hours of footage shot during the making of the film. Chevron wants to scour the footage for any material that might help its relentless public relations schemes to try to discredit the plaintiffs and their attorneys who are suing Chevron for environmental clean-up. It's just another chapter in Chevron's belligerent and well-financed effort to evade responsibility for its toxic legacy in the Amazon.

This event is open to students and staff of City University London and to the local community.  Registration required.
