    [synopsis] => Pretty Slick is the first film to fully reveal the devastating, untold story of BP's Corexit coverup following the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The spill is well known as one of the largest environmental disasters in U.S. history. But what is not well-known is that BP, with U.S. government approval, attempted to sink the oil rather than clean it up, using the controversial dispersant Corexit -- and then covered up the practice. Some estimates are that 75% of the oil, 150 million gallons, is still unaccounted for. When filmmaker James Fox learned of this, he began a three-year investigation, digging far deeper than any media outlet or film previously, to find the truth about the dispersant use and coverup. Pretty Slick questions whether public safety and environmental health took a backseat to restoring the tourist-based economy, and exposes the symbiosis between big oil and the U.S. government, which was as deep as the ocean is blue. Fox was on the ground and in the air with leading scientists, fisherman and other locals at the peak of the disaster, then returned for each of the three following years. During one visit, Fox met with Dr. Samantha Joye, who had traveled 5000 feet below the Gulf on a submarine to witness first-hand the spill's impact on the seabed floor. Despite the disaster, and subsequent revelations, PRETTY SLICK notes, there has been little or no federal action to make oil drilling safer or prevent the use of toxic dispersants in the next spill.
