After the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill

November 12, 2014, 6:08 pm


Here’s a simple narrative you’re probably familiar with:

Motivated by greed and speed, BP disregarded safety measures that could have prevented the 2010 explosion of the Deepwater Horizon offshore oil drilling rig. The rig exploded, killing 11 men and sending oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico—hundreds of millions of gallons over almost three months. Fisheries died. Hundreds of thousands of people who made their living from the Gulf’s waters have been frustrated in their efforts to obtain compensation for their losses, while BP glides along, largely unaffected by the tragedy it caused.

Margaret Brown’s observational new documentary, The Great Invisible, doesn’t directly question this received account. But the film, which just opened in New York, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and several other cities, offers a much richer look at the causes and effects of the spill, trying to make visible what’s remained unseen. The oil itself, an eco-choking mass that still lies below the surface, is the most obvious of the “great invisibles”—the title might better have used the plural form. But Brown is more interested in exploring deeper meanings of concealment, and she has struck rich veins.

Brown also spends some time with men who’d been working on the rig when it exploded. Stephen Stone, who survived the explosion and now suffers from PTSD, said his claim was denied twice because of issues relating to state taxes, even though there aren’t any in Texas. According to his lawyer, Brent Coon, as of July of this year Stone had yet to see a penny.
