The Rising

11/08/2016
What happens to people exposed to extreme oil operations?

In a fight for basic human rights, ordinary people are rising to extraordinary circumstances in a struggle with the consequences of a grave and hidden threat to the American public.

Starting with the 2010 BP disaster, the film exposes how unchecked corporate power and government collusion has resulted in public health being largely left out of the equation of America’s fossil fuel industry.

A foreign corporation was allowed to spray millions of gallons of toxic dispersants over 200 million gallons of toxic crude oil. 6 years later, the burden of proof that this mixture was harmful has fallen upon thousands of exposed, sick and dying Americans.

The Rising is a film and a solution to defend community health. The film is directed by Mark Manning, an oil field diver turned filmmaker, and it documents the spillworkers, health activists, and citizens in both the gulf and Washington DC who saw the devastation first-hand.
