Sweet Crude documentary + Panel at United Nations Association Film Festival

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 panel discussion with filmmaker Sandy Cioffi and Niger Delta experts follows the film.

"A movie about crime and shame, 'Sweet Crude' is also a classic example of urgent, righteous-indignation agitprop cinema that succeeds in being not just angry, but art." Variety
