Twenty years after the Exxon Valdez oil spill, marine biologist Riki Ott and the fishers in the town of Cordova, Alaska remind us that the biggest environmental catastrophe in North American history is still with us. Their story is outlined in this documentary. Black Wave: The Legend of the Exxon Valdez examines how the consequences from the Mar. 24, 1989 accident have become all the more apparent and painful. The spill has profoundly altered the lives of tens of thousands of people, reducing them to poverty and despair.
