Joe Berlinger's latest documentary focuses on the "Amazon Chernobyl" case - a 13-year battle between Chevron, one of the world's largest oil companies, and the indigenous communities in Ecuador nearly destroyed by their drilling. In a sophisticated take on the classic David and Goliath story, Berlinger crafts a portrait of the incredible team in the US and Ecuador who have pursued this case against all odds. Crude looks beyond compassion for the disenfranchised and the corruption of power to ask how justice itself is being defined in the 21st century.
