The Lexi are showing this film earlier on Tuesday evening - which we thought some of you might be interested in (a warm up before our Green Drinks the same evening!?):
Joe Berlinger's documentary is just released this year (not to be confused with 'A crude awakening' which we showed last week at our monthly film night)...
Following one of the most high-profile and controversial lawsuits in history, CRUDE spotlights the legal battles of 30,000 indigenous Amazonian Ecuadorians as they seek compensation from one of the world's most powerful oil companies, the Chevron Corporation. With an emphasis on human struggle and environmentalism, CRUDE guides us through the infamous $27-billion court case and examines the media whirlwind surrounding it. Featuring hard-hitting interviews and damning first-hand footage, you might expect this to be a single-minded affair. But Berlinger takes on the complex issue from multiple angles, presenting a balanced argument in the process.
