The Curse of The Petrol

Foreign oil companies like Shell, Mobil- Exxon, British Petroleum, Chevron etc and their allies in the Nigerian political system have managed to pollute the Nigerian air and environment. Every home in Nigeria runs on gasoline or diesel fueled generators only using power from NEPA as a sorry subside. Greed has not allowed the Americans to publish the fact the all the hurricanes landing on their shores is generated right here in West Africa.

Sure enough Nigerians are now living with high rates of cancer in less than 30 years with damaged rivers, creeks, land and air.

For international viewers, could you maybe add subtitles? I work abroad, but I have trouble picking up what your interviewee was saying some of the time.

Also, could you show what he was talking about? I gathered that he was talking about something that was causing pollutants/toxins to spread in the area, which is obviously no good, but I have no idea what was causing it or the extent of the damage.

I like what you’re doing. Just offering some comments of what I think might make it better. Keep up the good work, man. 🙂

Thanks J
Your comment and point is exactly one of the messages of this short documentary, which is to draw attention to the level of noise pollution in Nigeria.

Behind Innocent is about a dozen electric generators known as “I pass my neighbor” blaring away in the background. How do you live, work and transact business under those conditions. This is my way of using a picture to tell the story.

I have this short documentary Sign of The Times in subtitles am sure you will enjoy http://jujufilms.tv/2013/06/29/signs-of-the-times-i-was-born-for-this/

Thanks again
