Alexandra Cousteau’s Ocean of Doubt film shows human face of Gulf oil spill

Four months after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, Alexandra Cousteau visited the Gulf states to talk with residents about how the disaster impacted their lives. Her short film Ocean of Doubt: Polluted Waters, Broken Communities seeks to highlight the human tragedy that has followed the environmental wreckage.

The coastal people Alexandra interviewed seem to share a concern–whom can they trust to tell them whether their communities are safe? How will they know if the waters they rely on are poisoned? These questions remain unanswered, even as the mainstream media moves on to other stories.

Oceans of Doubt doesn’t provide the answers, but it does lend a human face to our country’s worst “environmental” disaster. Both simple and poignant, the film is well worth a watch.
