The Great Invisible (2014) Trailer
Trailer for The Great Invisible.
When the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico in April 2010, killing 11 workers and creating what would become one of the worst oil spills in history, many lives were changed forever. Juxtaposing a comprehensive history of the event (including onboard footage and testimonials) with contemporary personal stories of Gulf Coast residents affected by the tragedy, director Margaret Brown (The Order of Myths) creates a riveting, yet emotional thriller about corruption in the oil industry and the victims the crisis left in its wake. Using personal connections, the Alabama-born Brown dives deep into the community, finding the real story of the seemingly never-ending cleanup process and the long-lasting impact on the global oil economy. Poignant, complex and completely eye-opening, The Great Invisible might be the only film on oil you’ll ever need to see.
