The Details

THE COST OF SILENCE drive-in event on Thursday, July 9th at First Beach, Newport is SOLD OUT.



Secretly filmed over nine years, an oil industry insider exposes the devastating consequences of the Deepwater Horizon oil-spill and uncovers a public health disaster and the coordination between government and industry to silence the victims. The stakes could not be higher as the Trump administration races to open the entire US coastline to offshore drilling.


Photographs and/or video will be taken at this event. Images may be used by newportFILM for promotional purposes.
