Documentary double feature revisits Gulf environmental crisis

The 36-year-old Louisiana native who helped bring biofuel to the mainstream is bringing his film, "The Big Fix," to the Clinton Street Theater on July 5.

The 2011 documentary, directed by Josh Tickell and produced by his wife, Rebecca Harrell Tickell, details the aftermath of the BP/Deepwater Horizon oil spill on Earth Day 2010.

According to the film's synopsis: "According to the global media, the story ended when the well was capped -- but that's when the real story began. By exposing the root causes of the oil spill and what really happened after the news cameras left the Gulf states, filmmakers Josh and Rebecca Tickell uncover a vast network of corruption."

The film will show as a double feature to "Beyond the Spill," the documentary produced by PDX2GulfCoast after the group's trip to the gulf for 10 days in August 2010.

After the screening, "Beyond the Spill" director and other members of the Portland team will hold an audience question-and-answer session, as well as a book signing for the group's book, "Oil and Water," with authors Steve Duin and Shannon Wheeler.

All proceeds from the event go to Portland Audubon and Willamette Riverkeeper.

"The Big Fix" shows at 6 and 8 p.m. July 2 through July 4; "Beyond the Spill" shows at 7 p.m. July 5. Tickets $4 to $7.
