BEYOND POLLUTION film screening + discussion


Join us for the CHICAGO PREMIERE of the hit documentary BEYOND POLLUTION

Film DIRECTOR Barker White and PRODUCER Harper Robinson will be in attendance for a post-screening Q&A!! Come and meet the pro's!

Film Synopsis: A firsthand investigation of BP's disastrous oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, this film uncovers what really happened and why. The production team traveled across the gulf coast interviewing environmental experts, government authorities, fishermen, scientists, drilling engineers and key BP contractors to unveil a shocking tale of greed and corruption that culminated in the largest man-made environmental disaster in America's history. Beyond Pollution examines the economic impact and health effects this tragedy will have on the local communities, both immediate and long term, and how the communities are fighting back to save their towns and the planet.

Directed by Barker White // USA, 2012, 90 min
