In the early hours of March 24th, 1989 the Exxon Valdez oil supertanker runs aground in Alaska. It discharges millions of gallons of crude oil. The incident becomes the biggest environmental catastrophe in North American history.
For twenty years, Riki Ott and the fishermen of the little town of Cordova, Alaska have waged the longest legal battle in U.S. history against the world’s most powerful oil company – ExxonMobil. They tell us all about the environmental, social and economic consequences of the black wave that changed their lives forever. This is the legacy of the Exxon Valdez.

Screening takes place in the community room of the Davisville Apartments, 1221 Kennedy Place, Davis, CA.   which is located just off J Street, one short block South of Covell in east Davis. For visual directions… Google Map it or check your local map.

Kennedy Place is one block long with a grassy island in the middle of the street.

If you are driving… when you get to the end of the grassy island and before you get to the round-about make a left turn into the parking lot and park to your right in the eastern portion of the lot if you want to minimize your short walk to the community room. There are lots of parking spaces available.

If you bicycle… you may bike past the round-about directly to the meeting space.

In either case you will find the screening room straight ahead after you pass the first round-about just outside the apartment complex grounds. There is a large concrete area immediately in front of the meeting room at the second round-about.
