Big Men

Scottish Premiere + Audience discussion

Brad Pitt exec produces this extraordinary exposé of the hope, scepticism and corruption that threaten to exacerbate Africa’s resource curse and leave its ordinary citizens behind.

In Ghana, a small American energy company fights to hold onto its discovery of oil just as a new government comes into power. Meanwhile, in Nigeria, an established industry continues to take its toll from the people. Amid political uncertainty, power-plays are made, reputations gambled, and pipelines attacked by militants.

With remarkable access and an unflinching eye, Big Men shows the global and all-too-human drama behind the fuel that we continue to take for granted.
