On April 20, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico. It killed 11 workers and caused the worst oil spill in American history. The explosion still haunts the lives of those most intimately affected, though the story has long ago faded from the front page. At once a fascinating corporate thriller, a heartbreaking human drama and a peek inside the walls of the secretive oil industry, "The Great Invisible" is the first documentary feature to go beyond the media coverage to examine the crisis in depth through the eyes of oil executives, survivors and Gulf Coast residents who experienced it first-hand and then were left to pick up the pieces while the world moved on.Written by
9/23/17. After watching Deepwater Horizon I thought this would be a good documentary to watch about the disaster. While it did cover the impact of off-shore drilling on the local economy and how the accident impacted the lives of those who depended on the Gulf to make a living, it hardly went into the accident itself. This could have been like an extra featurette on the DVD release of Deepwater Horizon, which you should definitely watch than this.
