Oil in the Family

Filmmaker: Jon Goldman
Producers: Bestor Cram
Status: In Production

Oil in the Family is a feature-length documentary film that is both poetry and policy. It explores our marriage to oil through a uniquely personal journey. New England filmmaker Jon Goldman traces his roots (and good fortune) back to his family’s Louisiana oil field. There, he discovers that his grandmother played a vital role in the creation of one of the most celebrated – and derided – documentaries ever made, Robert J. Flaherty’s Louisiana Story.
