CRUDE is a real-life, high stakes legal drama set against a backdrop of the environmental movement, global politics, celebrity activism, human rights advocacy, the media, multinational corporate power, and rapidly-disappearing indigenous cultures. It is one of the largest and most controversial legal cases on the planet, and the film directed by Joe Berlinger takes an inside look at this infamous case nicknamed "Amazon Chernobyl" that involves $27 billion!
