Held in Farrand Hall.
Please join hosts Gail Osherenkous and the Museum of Natural History for a free screening of Broke: The SB Oil Pipeline Spill of 2015, a documentary film about the May 19, 2015 Plains All-American Pipeline oil spill on the Gaviota Coast in Santa Barbara County. The film highlights the reaction of citizens who came together in protest marches and healing ceremonies, rescued birds and marine mammals, cleaned the oil off our beaches, and demanded more stringent spill prevention and response.
It’s a one-hour environmental story with a peek back at the 1969 Santa Barbara oil spill that helped launch the environmental movement, EPA, and clean air and water laws, and a look forward to a fossil free future.
A Q&A session will follow the screening. Creator Gail Osherenko is an independent documentary film maker, long-time environmental activist, and SB Audubon member. Her other films include Dark Side of the Loon, Arctic Expedition, and Loon Chick’s First Summer.
Doors open at 7:00 pm – enjoy refreshments, sponsored By Santa Barbara Audubon Society.
