Ecolympics Film Night II: Crude

In case I don't have time to say more about the film, I want to at least post the trailer. Voted by the National Board of Review as one of the top five documentaries of 2009, Crude tells "the epic story of one of the largest and most controversial legal cases on the planet: the infamous $27 billion "Amazon Chernobyl" lawsuit pitting 30,000 rainforest dwellers in Ecuador against the US oil giant Chevron."

Continued from the film jacket: "Winner of 19 International Awards, Crude takes you inside a riveting, high stakes drama steeped in global politics, the environmental movement, celebrity activism, human rights advocacy, multinational corporate power, and rapidly disappearing indigenous cultures."

We're showing this documentary tomorrow, March 24 at 7pm in CAS B-36.
Please come at 645 pm to enjoy some vegan pizza.

The trailer is below:
