Delta - Oil’s Dirty Business

Tiburon Film Society will present "Delta - Oil’s Dirty Business" at the Bay Model located at 2100 Bridgeway in Sausalito on Tuesday, September 11, 2012 @ 6 PM.

Running Time:  64 minutes
Country:  Greece
Genre:  Documentary
Director: Yorgos Avgeropoulos

At the Delta of the Niger River in Nigeria, where a vast proportion of
the planet's oil is excavated, bomb attacks, abductions and murders form
part of the daily routine.The documentary portrays the image of
"development", as giant multinational petroleum companies would define
it. Petroleum leaks in the River destroy the flora and fauna, poison the
food chain and consequently wipe out the 27 million indigenous people
of the area - the Ijaws, the Ogoni and the Itsekiris.

The inhabitants dare to ask the self-evident, they demand an end to it. As a
response they are being massively and brutally attacked by special
forces of the army and the police, which are armed by the oil companies.
On the river the camera meets militia of the Movement for the
Emancipation of the Niger Delta-MEND- and, for the first time, presents
to the world shattering images of their speed boat patrols and heavy
weaponry.

The Delta of Niger is a lost paradise. As the documentary reveals, it is a place where despite the natural beauty, contemporary "globalized" hell prevails.
