About this submission

I want to use this film to delve deep into the narrative of the Santa Barbara Oil Spill, not just as a historical event, but as a symbol of the enduring impact of human negligence on nature. My personal connection to this story began when I arrived at UC Santa Barbara for college in 2016. The lingering scent of oil in the air and the visible signs of environmental damage were profound reminders of the 2015 oil spill tragedy. Witnessing the lasting effects on the ocean and the wildlife, I was moved to use film to make a difference.
