GREEDY LYING BASTARDS
One Earth Productions announced today that the feature documentary GREEDY LYING BASTARDS will open nationally on March 8, 2013 in the top twenty markets including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington DC, San Francisco, Houston, Detroit, Seattle, Tampa, Miami, Denver, Phoenix and San Diego.
Produced and directed by Craig Rosebraugh, with Daryl Hannah serving as executive producer, GREEDY LYING BASTARDS investigates the reason behind stalled efforts to tackle climate change despite consensus in the scientific community that it is not only a reality but also a growing problem that is placing the world on the brink of disaster. Two-time Emmy-Award winner Patrick Gambuti, Jr. co-wrote and edited the film and Michael Brook composed the original score.
Rosebraugh documents the impact of an industry that has continually put profits before people, waged a campaign of lies designed to thwart measures to combat climate change, and used its clout to minimize laws and regulations ultimately undermining the political process in the U.S. and abroad. The film takes aim at two companies, Koch Industries and ExxonMobil, charging them with being the main financial drivers of the climate change denial campaign worldwide.
