28 Nov Offshore Interactive Documentary
Offshore is an interactive doc that uses a virtual oil rig as its central interface to explore the impacts and consequences of our dependence on oil. Beginning with stories from the Deepwater Horizon, the project will be augmented over the next months with sequences from Brazil, Ghana, Russia and Alaska that highlight the consequences and impacts of this new energy frontier.
Naomi Klein tweeted: “For a visceral sense of the extreme risks of drilling 5.5km holes in the ocean, see this gr8 interactive doc.”
Dahr Jamail of Al Jazeera called it “truly amazing/groundbreaking film-making/journalism/writing history.”
For a nightmarish exploration of the real costs and impact of offshore drilling, see OFFSHORE, an interactive documentary that explores the dark waters of the global offshore oil industry in the wake of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon explosion. Environmental activism for the 21st century. http://offshore-
