The whole story about the biggest oil spill in the history of the maritime petroleum industry

On April 20th 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico and the blazing fire was visible more than 50 kilometres away. In THE GREAT INVISIBLE the complete story about the Deepwater Horizon oil spill is gathered in one place for the first time. Having spent four years interviewing people affected by the disaster, director Margaret Brown presents us with several interesting perspectives as she tries to get to the bottom of the question of whether US authorities learned anything at all from the biggest oil spill in the history of the maritime petroleum industry.
