Global Voices: Oil and Water
Global Voices from WGBH’s World Channel presents Oil & Water, the true story of two boys coming of age in the middle of one of the world’s worst toxic disasters: 18 billion gallons of oil waste was dumped in the Equadorian Amazon, leading to unexplainable rashes, childhood deformities, and ballooning cancer rates.
Hugo, of Ecuador’s Cofan tribe, was educated in the US and returns to fight for the survival of his Amazonian tribe. David, of nearby Amherst MA, started a humanitarian aid project in the Amazon, attempting to revolutionize the oil industry.
