The Film "Crude"

Subject: The film “Crude”

From: John Perkins

Dear Friends,

“Crude” is an amazing and beautifully filmed documentary about the critical lawsuit filed on behalf of 30,000 Ecuadorian people in the Amazon against Texaco/Chevron. A MUST SEE! It is now playing in NYC and LA, then soon in San Francisco and Chicago.

I urge you to see it.

Below is an email I just received from its producer, Mike Bonfiglio.


Hi John,

How are you? We wanted to ask you a favor -- would it be possible to send another e-mail to your list about "Crude"? The film is now playing in New York and Los Angeles, and it expands into San Francisco tomorrow and Chicago next weekend. These cities are absolutely critical to the extended life of the film and its message reaching far and wide. A full list of upcoming cities where the film will be playing can be found here:

Interestingly, the expansion of "Crude" is coinciding with a new development in the case -- Chevron is now suing the nation of Ecuador, in a desperate attempt to avoid what they anticipate will be a ruling against them and further delay justice:

John, we would so greatly appreciate it if you could get the word out again to your list -- New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago will be the keys to "Crude" having an extended life. Your support means so much.
