ABOUT THE FILM:
THE RISING is a crowd funded film project (DONATE) that gives voice to the silenced Deepwater Horizon disaster victims. Today throughout the Gulf Coast states, hundreds of thousands are suffering serious health consequences following America’s largest “environmental” disaster. Their stories are not being told and the true human costs have not been reported, counted or addressed. This hidden health crisis may be one of America’s largest and most effective cover-ups.
Through the stories of every-day, hardworking, iconic Americans, The Rising exposes the real consequences of the disaster and uncovers a grave and hidden threat to the nation. The film makes the case that Public Health and Safety have been largely and purposefully left out of equation of the worlds carbon energy industry practices. In fracking, deep-water drilling, spill disasters, refineries and pipeline development … there is a frightening and deadly truth: human health is not realistically considered or protected and the general public is unaware of the immediate threat to their lives, families and communities.
Mark Manning, an oil field diver turned award-winning investigative filmmaker, directs The Rising.
