Black November: struggle for the “oil” Delta makes the big screen


    Black November narrates the story of a Niger Delta community’s struggle against their government and a multi-national oil corporation to save their environment which is being destroyed by excessive oil drilling. The Nollywood and Hollywood production stares Hakeem Kae-Kazim, Mickey Rourke, Kim Basinger, Sarah Wayne Callies, Nse Ikpe Etim, Enyinna Nwigwe, OC Ukeje, Vivica Fox, Anne Heche, Persia White, Akon, Wyclef Jean and Mbong Amata.

    Eco Nigeria caught up with fast rising actor, Enyinna Nwigwe, to share his thoughts on the theme of sustainable resource management in the movie. “Nature does provide enough to satisfy every man’s need, but not every man’s greed. When a nation destroys it’s soil, it destroys itself” he said. The struggle to stop environmental degradation of oil communities has been an age long, difficult one. Making a movie of this human right issue, brings more required attention to the plight of the affected people, while shaming the dirty corporations involved.

    The movie is directed and co-produced by Jeta Amata.
