Greedy Lying Bastards, a provocative new documentary about climate change, opens at the Coolidge Corner Theatre on Friday, March 8.
Directed by Craig Rosebraugh, the film investigates the reasons behind stalled efforts to tackle climate change despite consensus in the scientific community that it not only exists, but is a growing problem moving us toward the brink of disaster. Focusing on the influence of Exxon and the Koch brothers, Greedy Lying Bastards documents the impact of an industry that has continually waged a campaign 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.
Filmed in the US, Tuvalu, Peru, England, Uganda, Kenya, Belgium, Denmark and Germany, Greedy Lying Bastards features interviews with top U.S. climate scientists, industry experts and international political delegates including UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and former EPA head Christine Todd Whitman, as well as people personally affected by the changing climate and leading climate science skeptics.
