A new film about the Gulf of Mexico oil spill that transpired when London-based oil giant BP’s Macondo well exploded in April 2010, called The Great Invisible, is currently showing in select cinemas in New York and Los Angeles, The Hollywood Reporter stated.
According to Peabody Award-winning director Margaret Brown, her documentary was done in a span of four years wherein she interviewed Deepwater Horizon crew members who survived the initial blast, local residents whose homes or businesses were affected by the spill, BP settlement lawyer Kenneth Feinberg, and BP’s executives and primary officials.
The Great Invisible premiered at the SXSW Film Festival, where it won the Grand Jury Prize. It then got sponsored by distribution company Radius-TWC (Citizenfour, 20 Feet from Stardom), which has claimed it as an Oscars contender.
