VANISHING PEARLS – Now Streaming
"The importance of a film like Vanishing Pearls is immeasurable." – Paste Magazine
"Nailah Jefferson's first documentary deserves a spot alongside works like Ken and Sarah Burns's The Central Park Five and Spike Lee's When the Levees Broke." – Paste Magazine
Another addition from Ava DuVernay's ARRAY library, Nailah Jefferson's Vanishing Pearls chronicles the untold story of personal and professional devastation in Pointe à la Hache, a close-knit fishing village on the Gulf coast, following the 2010 Deepwater Horizon BP oil spill. This 2014 Slamdance Film Festival Official Selection delves into the worst environmental disaster in American history just as news cameras leave the scene of the crime.
