The Conservation Foundation is proud to be a partner in the One Earth Film Festival, bringing you a screening of the film "After the Spill" this Thursday, March 8th, 2018, 7pm at the College of DuPage.
FILM DESCRIPTION: When the Deepwater Horizon offshore drilling rig exploded, it spilled more than 200 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico in the worst ecologic disaster in North American history. Now, activist and filmmaker Jon Bowermaster takes stock and asks hard questions: What is the current health of the Gulf and its marine life? How sick are the fish, and how sick are the people? How has the oil industry changed since the spill … and how have we changed?
THE LOCAL SPIN: This isn’t just a coastal issue. Dozens of pipelines snake through the Midwest. Many of them are aging, like one under the Straits of Mackinac, potentially posing a catastrophic threat to the Great Lakes and the livelihoods, homes and drinking water for millions of people.
After the film, hear about the present state of our local watersheds from staff members of The Conservation Foundation and the Glenbard Wastewater Treatment facility.
This screening is free but advanced ticket reservations are recommended.
