The name of the film is spOILed. The man who behind it all has an interesting story. Mark Mathis actually started out in the news business, and so he's always had a passion to learn about everything going on around him.
After 10 years of anchoring and reporting, he became a consultant to the oil industry. He started learning all about oil and the role that it plays in our everyday lives. What he didn't know shocked him. That's when he decided to make a documentary highlighting the facts about oil and cutting through the propaganda.
A lot of what spOILed uncovers is even shocking to people in the oil business. Mathis says, "As people in the industry watch the film, they tend to get a little upset. It all comes crashing down. They can't believe that the level of deception is out there, is out there because of the different forces that are out there putting the propaganda out." Mathis adds that it all comes back to politicians, the national news media, and the environmental groups that have different agendas.
The documentary will be showing again at Hollywood Theaters in Midland on Wednesday and Thursday at 2:30pm, 5pm and 7pm. DVD's are also available for $20.
