Sweet Crude documentary film about Niger Delta oil conflict
Northwest Film Center's Whitsell Auditorium inside the Portland Art Museum at 1219 SW Park Avenue, Portland
Sweet Crude is a documentary film about the Niger Delta - the consequences of oil extraction, the history of non-violent protest, and the members of a new insurgency who, in the three 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
