Post-screening discussion

Montclair’s Environmental Affairs office and Community Green are pleased to present Oil & Water – another thought-provoking movie that's part of their Green Film Series. The film will be screened on Thursday, July 16, 6:30 p.m. at the Public Library, 50 South Fullerton Avenue. All events at the Library are free.

Oil & Water is a true story of two boys coming of age as they each confront one of the world’s worst toxic disasters, and a look at their resulting environmental activism.

Hugo and David were born on opposite ends of the petroleum pipeline. Hugo comes to America to fight for the survival of his Cofán tribe in the Ecuadorian Amazon, while David goes to Ecuador to launch the world’s first company to certify oil as “fair trade”, meaning that it is drilled in a safer and more ethical way.

Their journeys lead them to explore what could be a more just future, not just for the Cofán, but for all people around the world born with oil beneath their feet.

Oil & Water is an intimate portrait of two young people finding their voices, trying to beat incredible odds. One was born there. One was drawn there. The Amazon needs them both.

Please join us, and bring a friend, a family member, or your neighbor to the film screening and the open discussion afterwards.
