"'Crude,' the Film, Explores Oil Giants' Crude Conduct in Ecuador"
"The acclaimed documentary film 'Crude,' which details the 16-year struggle of indigenous peoples in Ecuador's Amazon to hold Chevron legally accountable for contamination of a huge rainforest area, opens in Washington, DC on Friday during intense scrutiny of a $27 billion liability lawsuit against the oil giant.
Since it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, 'Crude' has been praised in the media and has won a series of environmental and human rights awards. Theaters were packed for the film's opening weekend in New York City in September."
