Synopsis by Robert Silva

The 1989 Exxon Valdez disaster might seem like history to some, but this documentary chronicles the continuing fallout from the environmental disaster. When the Exxon oil tanker crashed on Alaska's Prince William Sound, spilling millions of gallons of oil into the ocean, Exxon pledged responsibility and a thorough cleanup. What's shown by director Rob Cornellier in this exposé is far less and considerably more maddening: a history of callous behavior that has left ordinary people paying the cost while an oil company reaps billions.
