Crude | USA 2009

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”.


Ecuadoran tribespeople contend that Chevron Corp. has poisoned their environment. Three years in the making, this cinema-verite feature from acclaimed filmmaker Joe Berlinger (Brother’s Keeper, Paradise Lost, Metallica: Some Kind of Monster) is the inside story of the infamous “Amazon Chernobyl” case.


Crude is a real-life high stakes legal drama, set against a backdrop of the environmental movement, global politics, celebrity activism, human rights advocacy, the media, multinational corporate power, and rapidly-disappearing indigenous cultures.
