Washington, D.C. — Five years after the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion set off the largest oil spill in American history, the effects are still being felt today. In “The Great Invisible,” filmmaker Margaret Brown travels to small towns and major cities across Alabama, Louisiana, and Texas to explore the fallout of this environmental disaster. Brown’s film reveals how we are all still haunted by the Deepwater Horizon explosion, long after the story has faded from the front page.
As part of Reel Progress, the Center for American Progress and Ceres will host a screening of “The Great Invisible” on Thursday, June 25, followed immediately by a panel discussion about ways to reduce oil consumption. Sen. Ed Markey will give remarks.
