Isaac's feature documentary premiered at the 2019 Santa Barbara International Film Festival to a sold-out crowd screening again on closing night at the famed Lobero Theater. In June, it traveled to the 2109 Bozeman Film Celebration, where it was a finalist for the Ted Turner Prize. In August it won Best Feature Documentary in the Santiago International Indie Awards. The film, produced by Nancy Black, is also Official Selection of the LA Femme Film Festival, screening at LA Live Regal on October 18, 2pm, and of the Santa Barbara Surf Film Festival, where on November 9th will headline a panel discussion on community activism.
The 1969 Union Oil blowout mobilized the Santa Barbara community to fight for the environment, inspiring the creation of many nonprofit organizations, Earth Day, the Environmental Protection Agency and the first interdisciplinary Environmental Studies program. The legacy of the oil spill continues to inform this community, which keeps coming together, providing local solutions to global environmental problems, exemplified when over 3,000 volunteers joined the Santa Barbara Bucket Brigade to dig mud from homes after the deadly 2018 debris flow.
