Craig Rosebraugh’s privately financed $1.5m film documents the impact of the fossil fuel industry.
Patrick Gambuti Jr co-wrote and co-edited the project, a two-year investigation spanning five continents and nine countries with more than 400 hours of production footage.
“This film is an investigation into an industry that is simply out of control,” Rosebraugh said. “The fossil fuel industry has shown that it will stop at nothing to maximise profits for shareholders, whether its cutting corners on safety, employing highly paid lobbyist to impact the political process, giving huge amounts to climate change deniers to ensure that no legislation is passed that would impact the bottom line, or complicity in the murder of individuals who speak up against environmental degradation.”
Greedy Lying Bastards features interviews with scientists, industry experts, international political delegates and climate change victims, among others.
