BRAZIL’S BLACK SUN
In Brazil, nothing is ever completely black. Except for oil.
10 years ago, Brazil was on top of the world with the exploitation of huge underwater gas and oil fields.
Today, Brazil’s hopes have been crushed and the national company, Petrobras, is caught in a huge corruption scandal. The market has collapsed and so did the profitability of offshore drilling. Pollution is widespread to the point of affecting next year Olympic nautical events.
This is the chronicle of a disaster, unforeseen by Brazilian leaders, through the struggle of a fisherman against the oil industry.
