Synopsis:
An important documentary focusing on the class action $18 billion lawsuit against Chevron for deliberately contaminating the Ecuadorian Amazon and causing a wave of cancer and miscarriages in the region. For more than three decades, Chevron has chosen profit over people. While drilling for oil in Ecuador's Amazon rainforest region, Texaco - which merged with Chevron in 2001 - operated without concern for the environment or local residents. The company deliberately dumped billions of gallons of toxic wastewater into rivers and streams, spilled millions of gallons of crude oil, and abandoned hazardous waste in hundreds of unlined open-air pits littered throughout the region. The result is widespread devastation of the rainforest ecosystem and local indigenous communities, and one of the worst environmental disasters in history.
