“Sweet Crude”: Oil in the Niger Delta

For those that have not yet had a chance to see it, there is a very good documentary film about the Niger Delta oil crisis called “Sweet Crude”.  You can watch a trailer of the film here:

The film’s Director Sandy Cioffi was also interviewed and she shares some astute thoughts and recollections on the politics of oil in Nigeria. These include the not too pleasant experience of being arrested by Nigeria’s State Security Service.



If you want to be sent a DVD of the film, you can sign up on the film makers’ website at:
