DELTA - OIL'S DIRTY BUSINESS

DELTA - OIL'S DIRTY BUSINESS

 

Yorgos Avgeropoulos, 60 min. (Prod: Small Planet, GR)


Amazonia's oil business  silencing
ethnies to death.

The Delta of the Niger River, in Nigeria, constitutes a vast proportion of the planet's oil ressources. Bomb attacks, abductions and murders form part of the daily life. The documentary portrays the image of "development", as giant multinational petroleum companies would define it. Petroleum leaks in the River destroy the flora and fauna, poison the food chain and consequently wipe out the 27 million indigenous people of the area - the Ijaws, the Ogoni and the Itsekiris, mainly living of fishing and agriculture.
