'Greedy Lying Bastards' Poster

Produced by Daryl Hannah and directed by first-timer Craig Scott Rosebraugh. Here's the synopsis:

What happens when an industry has too much power? "Greedy Lying Bastards" presents a searing indictment of the influence, deceit and corruption that defines the fossil fuel industry. From the Gulf Coast to the tiny nation of Tuvalu, from Nigeria and Uganda to Peru and Alaska, filmmaker and political activist Craig Rosebraugh documents the impact of an industry that has continually put profits before people, waged a campaign of lies designed to thwart measures to combat climate change, used its clout to minimize infringing regulations and undermined the political process in the U.S. and abroad. This in-depth investigation into the industry spanned five continents and nine countries. "Greedy Lying Bastards" is the disturbing and revealing portrait of what was uncovered on this journey, a tale of devastating consequences. By interweaving the stories of the victims of the Gulf oil spill and the global climate crisis with a look at the practices of fossil fuel companies and the climate change deniers they support, the film lays bare the industry's deliberate pattern of irresponsibility 

And the poster. Love the tag: From sea to shining sea. Nice, smart -- very sharp.
