Oil and Water & Dryden
Oil & Water
USA, Ecuador, 2014, 78 minutes
Director Francine Strickwerda & Laurel Spellman Smith
Filmed both in America and Ecuador, this is the story of the unlikely meeting of two young men are taking on the oil companies in the Ecuadorean Amazon. One is an American educated, Cofan Indian whose tribes very existence is threatened by the oil fields that surround them. One is a college student whose trip to the Amazon inspired him to become a full time activist on rainforest oil issues.
Dryden is the story of the small town that changed the fracking game. Residents were told they had no choice but to sign their rights away to the fracking company. Instead they started a homegrown campaign to keep the industry out. Dryden is an inspiring tale of local politics as practiced by the townspeople in the best American tradition.
