Prepare:This is another movie time! Prior to tackling this discussion question, order chicken wings and some cold beverages and watch our weekly movie, Crude. As usual, make sure you have the discussion questions handy as your watch the movie so that you can take some notes and respond effectively to these questions. Also, review Chapters 11 and 12 in A Novel Approach to Politics.
Reflect.pngReflect: Three years in the making, Crude tells the epic story of one of the largest and most controversial legal cases on the planet: the infamous $27 billion “Amazon Chernobyl” lawsuit pitting 30,000 rainforest dwellers in Ecuador against the U.S. oil corporation Chevron. Winner of 19 international awards, Crude takes you inside a riveting, high stakes drama steeped in global politics, the environmental movement, celebrity activism, human rights advocacy, multinational corporate power, and rapidly disappearing indigenous cultures.
