Hearing from those effected most immediately by the Oil Spill.
Shot by Robert M. Young and Edward James Olmos on a trip to the heart of the oil spill in the Gulf. Edited by Stephen Cohen.
Robert Young and I jumped on a plane and went to the Gulf of Mexico just to lend our support by documenting what we saw…
Well, the people that we met took up all of our time. It was brutal! I was not ready for the human aspect because no one had prepared me for it.
I thought they would be angry. They are devastated.
Take a look at this video and see for yourself. People are afraid to talk and you will learn why watching this…
Please pass it on, recommend it.
If you feel like doing something, just go down there (anywhere on the Gulf) and support by spending time and energy in the region.
They need our support. Thank you for Caring.
Edward James Olmos
