When: Monday, April 06, 2015 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Where: 1102 South Campus Commons, Building 1
Event Type(s): Movie/Film/Video

When the Greenpeace ship Arctic Sunrise set sail to protest the first ever oil drilling in the Arctic Ocean, none of the crew on board could have known what was coming. Seized at gunpoint by Russian special forces, the 'Arctic 30' were thrust into headlines all over the world, facing up to 15 years in prison at the center of a bitter international dispute. A similar protest the previous year at the same oil platform had seen the Greenpeace activists walk away untouched. This time, the events sent shockwaves across the world. Russia charged the crew with piracy and hooliganism in the most ruthless response against an NGO in 25 years. Their imprisonment, which saw worldwide media cast the Arctic 30 as political prisoners, lasted months. However, their resolve to try and stop oil drilling in the Arctic was never broken. 'Black Ice' tells the story of the Arctic 30 from the moment they protested at the Prirazlomnaya oil platform, to their arrest, imprisonment and what happened next.
