"A fascinating and important story…does an extraordinary job of merging journalism and art" - Christiane Amanpour, CNN

From the director of His Brother’s Keeper and Paradise Lost, Crude is an impassioned David vs. Goliath story about an indigenous group in Ecuador's Amazon region who found their society threatened with devastation by Chevron's oil drilling operations. The Ecuadorians are the film's focus, as they take on multinational corporate interests in defense of their own human rights. They bring their cause to the attention of the global media, pointing to corporate malfeasance on the highest levels while at the same time arguing for self-determination in ecological and environmental terms.
