The Big Fix

The Big Fix

This award-winning feature documentary exposes the aftermath of the biggest oil spill in history. On Earth Day in April 2010, an offshore drilling rig run by BP exploded and sank in the Gulf of Mexico, spilling millions of gallons of crude oil. This was followed by toxic chemical dispersant to 'clean up', killing marine life and making people who reside along the Gulf Shore sick. Sundance award-winning filmmakers Josh and Rebecca Tickell travel the coast of the Gulf, digging for the truth, meeting the residents who were left struggling with toxic waste and illness, while media and government assured the public all was solved and safe. The Big Fix is a disturbing look at the ties between government and the huge profits of Big Oil, and the consequences to the environment and the people in the path of this man-made disaster.
