Reviews and FestivalsBest of 2016, Science Books and Films
“Highly Recommended. Editor’s Choice.
Uses excellent footage and narration to build a story about the environmental impacts of the petroleum industry in southern Louisiana. The video covers the history of the southern Louisiana oil boom of the 1900s and works its way into an account of environmental injustice and corporate greed. The environmental impacts explained in the explanations are scientifically accurate and free from sensationalism.”

Shrimpers, ex-governors, biologists, attorneys, and Tulane Law professors all say the same thing: Louisiana's bargain with the oil industry has switched from money for oil to money for land, and we're also losing a way of life, hurricane protection and seafood. Environmental peril crosses the nation...but Louisiana's wetlands could completely disappear in 50 years leaving New Orleans a coastal city.”

"This is one of the most important films ever produced in Louisiana. Lube Job
captures the real existential threat facing South Louisiana today and clearly articulates why the loss of Louisiana's coast, communities and cultures is an American problem that must be solved quickly."
