Sweet Crude documentary at Tacoma Film Festival

A film about the Niger Delta consequences of oil extraction, history of non-violent protest, and members of a new insurgency who, in the 3 years since the filmmakers met them as college students became the young men of MEND. Seattle-based filmmaker Sandy Cioffi was held in Nigerian military prison with her crew while making this movie in 2008.

a classic example of urgent, righteous-indignation agitprop cinema that succeeds in being not just angry, but art. Variety
