The Big Fix – the wildly successful, critically acclaimed documentary film on the BP oil spill – is making big waves across the country and around the world. Fresh from its explosive North American premiere and its “standing ovation” debut at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, The Big Fix is making an exclusive week-long run at Chalmette Movies in New Orleans Nov. 4-10.
Do not miss this opportunity to see the film that Gambit describes as “massively important” and Huffington Post calls “a must-see.”
New Orleans native Josh Tickell and his wife and co-director Rebecca Harrell Tickell serve up an epic exposé, pulling back the curtain on the unholy alliance between our federal government and multinational corporations like BP. The Big Fix recounts in riveting detail the events surrounding the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history. If you have questions (and how could you not) about the events leading up to the spill and the devastating aftermath, The Big Fix will provide the answers.
Through an array of gripping interviews with scientists, government officials, journalists (including Rolling Stone’s Jeff Goodell who examined the Gulf spill in his article “The Poisoning”), attorneys (including myself) and a bevy of Gulf Coast natives from fishermen to business owners, The Big Fix delivers a no-punches-pulled portrayal of “what happened” – and how it could happen again.
Regardless of what you’ve heard, this disaster is far from over. BP’s oil continues to contaminate our shores, decimate our fisheries, bludgeon our economy and jeopardize our health and livelihoods.
Grab your family, friends, colleagues and complete strangers on the street if they’re willing and get out to see this film. You owe it to yourself.
