A thought provoking, in-depth look at the causes and effects of the most devastating man made environmental disaster America has ever experienced. This film is a firsthand investigation into BP's disastrous oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Traveling thousands of miles across the Gulf coast interviewing environmental experts, government officials, fisherman & distributors, scientists, drilling engineers, and key BP contractors, the film reveals in depth the immediate and long term environmental, economic, and health impacts the tragedy is having on the local communities. In the context of BP's record on safety and the environment, the oil spill now seems sadly inevitable, so why weren't measures put in place to avoid the disaster that will be felt for generations to come? How were they able to play down the consequences and avoid criminal responsibility, and how did their response further devestate those communities affected? Beyond Pollution is an exhaustively researched and elegantly executed expos©♭ on an avoidable tragedy that began with an oil spill but had far-reaching, and unreported repercussions, uncovering what really happened, why, and who really benefited.
