Trudie Styler has teamed up with moviemaker Joe Berlinger to make a documentary film about a community of 30,00 tribal members in the Amazonian jungle of Ecuador who hold a corporation responsible for its crimes against their land, their livelihood, and their lives.

Crude follows a trip to Ecuador that Styler – wife of Sting – and Berlinger – director of Metallica's Some Kind of Monster – took to chronicle the effects that Chevron’s oil production facilities are having on locals. The company has spent the last 30 years contaminating the air, land, and water of the area, and cancer, leukemia, and birth defects have become a major problem.

“I saw the most appalling human rights violations I’ve ever witnessed,” said Styler. “I’ve seen some pretty grim sights, but nothing could prepare me for the sight of indigenous people with no access to clean water who have been systematically poisoned.”
