The Big Fix

Louisiana native Josh Tickell and his wife, Rebecca Harrell Tickell, chronicle the aftermath of the 2010 BP oil spill, which has gone largely unreported. What they find is sadly unsurprising, but dismaying nonetheless: a political culture in which corporate needs come first and citizen safety is roundly ignored. They present so much damning evidence that their case is — one hopes — impossible to ignore. — New York Times

Filmmaker Josh Tickell, a Louisiana native, had two questions he wanted answered when he set out to make his documentary: What were we not told by the media in the days and weeks immediately following the April 2010 British Petroleum oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and what haven’t we been told since the story faded from the news cycle? If The Big Fix had just simply tackled those questions alone, the story uncovered would be maddening: BP’s repeated flaunting of safety codes; their blatant disregard for the lives of individuals and communities devastated by the spill; collusion among the U.S. government (from local to the White House), the media, and BP to hide the damage and avoid holding anyone accountable.”
