Episode Info

Next: 27x09 -- Big Men (Aug/25/2014)


Over five years, director Rachel Boynton and her cinematographer filmed the quest for oil in Ghana by Dallas-based Kosmos. The company develops the country's first commercial oil field, yet its success is quickly compromised by political intrigue and accusations of corruption. As Ghanaians wait to reap the benefits of oil, the filmmakers discover violent resistance down the coast in the Niger Delta, where poor Nigerians have yet to prosper from decades-old oil fields. This film, executive produced by Brad Pitt, provides an unprecedented inside look at the global deal making and dark underside of energy development -- a contest for money and power that is reshaping the world.


Prev: 27x08 -- A World Not Ours (Aug/18/2014)
