Oil & Water

Presented by Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital and Global Foundation for Democracy and Development

Oil & Water is the coming of age story of two boys as they each confront one of the world’s worst toxic disasters, the prolonged contamination of the Ecuadorian Amazon by Texaco and other oil companies. Hugo comes to America to fight for the survival of his tribe, the Cofán, while David goes to Ecuador to launch the world’s first company to certify oil as “fair trade.” Can Hugo become the leader his tribe so desperately wants him to be? Will David clean up one of the world’s dirtiest industries?  Directed by Francine Strickwerda and Laurel Spellman Smith.
