‘The Big Fix’ screens at the Cozmic Café

“The Big Fix” screens at the Cozmic Café, 594 Main St. in Placerville, on Wednesday, May 14.

“The Big Fix” is a chilling look at the aftermath of the 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Two daring filmmakers, Josh and Rebecca Tickell, go undercover to investigate and expose the shoddy environmental and safety practices of big oil. Through Tickellʼs lens, the cover up, corruption on all levels of government and the power of oil lobbyists are all exposed.

“If you think that the hazards of the Gulf spill have been cleaned up and all is well, think again,” said Patty Wilson of the Coalition for Change. “Turns out that the ʻfixʻ for the oil spill is actually worse than the oil itself.”

Once again viewers find that there is a revolving door between the corporate lobbyists and the politicians who are supposed to be representing us. The ratio is as high as 400 lobbyists for every elected politician.

“It is disheartening to find another example that our government is in the pockets of corporations and not really working for us,” commented Bob Johnson of the Sierra Club.

Doors at the Cozmic Café open at 6 p.m. with “The Big Fix” starting at 6:30. Food service ends at 6.

A $3 donation is appreciated to help cover the cost of the room rental.

Starting last September, the film series co-sponsored by the Sierra Club and the Coalition for Change has enjoyed great community support. The series will be taking a hiatus during the summer, resuming Sept. 10 with the documentary “Inequality for All.”

Other fall films include: “The End of the Line” on Oct. 8 and “A Place at the Table” on Nov. 12.
