After growing up in oil-rich Louisiana, Anne Rolfes’ worldview is turned upside down when she goes to the Peace Corps and learns about Nigerian villages ravaged by oil. She returned home to dedicate her life to helping communities living fenceline to refineries. The BP oil disaster changed her life again. We watch how Anne’s group takes offshore oil to task, making the oil industry transparent in a new way. NOT BY SIGHT shows how the biggest environmental disaster in U.S. history transforms an activist and an industry.
