About The Film

Skimming the Surface

Directed by Landon Lott and Tim Arnold

Louisiana, a once rich and beautiful wetland, is now suffering from an unseen virus. Crude oil continues to leak from BP's doomed DeepWater Horizon well at a rate of 60,000 barrels per day. This problem is intensified by the use of over 2,000,000 gallons of toxic dispersant used to battle the oil, despite ominous warnings from federal and local officials. These two problems together continue to wreak havoc on not only the fragile ecosystem of southern Louisiana, but the economy as well. We discuss with local politicians, business owners, and residents about the impact that the spill has had on their lives and careers. We take a moment to reflect on what should be done so that a man man disaster like this never happens again.
