On April 20th, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, killing eleven BP workers and spewing 200 million barrels of oil into the ocean. DIRTY ENERGY goes inside the lives of local Louisiana residents impacted by one of the worst environmental disasters in history-long gone from television screens and the eye of the American public-and manifesting long-term economic and health crises. The film is a poignant portrait of the human cost of having millions of gallons of oil and toxic dispersant in the ecosystem, and the systematic failure by BP and the U.S. Government to transparently manage the environmental assault, which will affect the world's oceans and rivers for generations to come.
