Oil hits home: BP's drilling disaster, Gulf Tides Part 4 (3:42)
Date of Video: Jun. 28, 2010
In the second month of the BP drilling disaster, Gulf Tides revisits the Atakapa-Ishak people of Grand Bayou Community, in lower Plaquemines Parish, an area hard-hit by BP's crude oil. The fourth episode in the ongoing series features interviews with Rosina Philippe and commercial fisherman Maurice "Bimbo" Phillips, describing what has happened to their traditional fishing grounds and community. As DC weighs in and the White House holds BP to their pledges, little effective action is seen on the water. Narrated by Tim Robbins, created by Gulf Restoration Network and NOLA Image Works, with the support of the Vitalogy Foundation.
