This animated film reflects on the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and its environmental impact.

Students in grades 6 to 8 at Sidney Gutierrez Middle School in Roswell, New Mexico, created the film, under the direction of animator Karen Aqua and composer Ken Field. The students used hand-drawn animation techniques (cut-outs and flipbooks), and created all the artwork, sound effects, music, and narration.
