Crude is the inside story of the “Amazon Chernobyl” case in the rainforest of Ecuador, the largest oil-related environmental lawsuit in the world. With extraordinary access to the key players involved, filmmaker Joe Berlinger (Brother’s Keeper, Paradise Lost, Metallica: Some Kind of Monster) and his crew captured all sides of a controversial, epic drama as it unfolded inside and outside the courtroom.
