Cinema Politica: The Big Fix

The Big Fix, a film about the Deepwater Horizon sinking in the Gulf of Mexico, is the featured film for the beginning of the fall season of Cinema Politica. It will be shown at Medicine Hat Public Library on Monday, September 24, 2012 at 7.00 pm.

The Big Fix looks at the root causes of the offshore drilling rig sinking in the Gulf on April 22, 2010. This disaster created the worst oil spill in history. The film exposes the root causes of the spill and the massive cover-up that followed by BP. In making the film, filmmakers uncovered a vast network of corruption exposing a government that puts the pursuit of profit above all other human and environmental needs.

The film features Peter Fonda, Amy Smart and Jean-Michel Cousteau.

The Big Fix was an official selection at the Festival de Cannes in 2011.

Cinema Politica and Monday Night at the Movies/Friends of Medicine Hat Public Library are cosponsors of this free program.
