Dead Ahead: The Exxon Valdez Disaster

Until the Deepwater Horizon oil spill of 2010, the Exxon Valdez was the worst oil spill to occur in the United States. Although a great deal of oil was spilled from the tanker, much of its severity resulted from the disorganized cleanup effort that resulted. Prince William Sound, the area of Alaska affected by this spill, has yet to fully recover over 20 years later. This HBO movie is a re-enactment based on the actual events of the wreck, spillage, and eventual cleanup effort of the Exxon Valdez.

The movie is out of print and difficult to find, but it is available on Youtube.
