A Concerned Citizen
Director/Producer: Bo Boudart (40 min) US
A documentary about Dr. Riki Ott, the whistleblower who predicted the Exxon Valdez oil spill hours before it happened. A toxicologist, author, and activist, Riki has been organizing Gulf Coast communities as they try to recover from the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster, as well as helping spearhead a campaign with Ultimate Civics that will introduce a Constitutional amendment to end corporate personhood and reform campaign finance laws. The film also follows others who share this concern and fight to protect America’s lands, rivers, and coastal waters from oil pollution. Climate change and environmental protection have a completely new meaning in our current moment– how can we continue to fight for the planet without putting our health at risk?
Please join us for the online panel discussion with the subject of the film toxicologist, author and activist Dr. Riki Ott and the former Mayor of Palo Alto Pat Burt, moderated by Jasmina Bojic, Camera as Witness Program – Stanford Arts Director and Founder of the international documentary film festival UNAFF.
