Sweet Crude

50 years of oil extraction meets non-violent protest – this timely lesson for Canada comes from the Niger Delta where members of a new insurgency, the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta, are demanding an end to devastating environmental degradation and a share of the $700 billion oil profits. This superbly crafted film confronts issues of human rights, resource control, environmental justice and mainstream media agendas. In this moment, there’s an opportunity to find solutions. What if we paid attention before it was too late?
