Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #131. Margaret Brown’s The Great Invisible

The Great Invisible

Director: Margaret Brown
Producer: Jason Orans
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

We’ve been hyping the talents of Margaret Brown the moment she introduced Be Here to Love Me: A Film About Townes Van Zandt and her follow up sophomore film The Order of Myths to docuphiles. In the oven for a little while now, we’re thinking The Great Invisible might play as a socially conscious Jennifer Baichwal type doc film where the discourse is found in what is being said, but more importantly what is being spoken in a visual sense.

Gist: Margaret Brown’s new documentary is an investigation into the personal stories behind the tragic 2010 BP Oil Spill. The film uncovers how government and corporate interests respond in the wake of an environmental crisis, and the way this affects a region and culture so rooted in nature.

Release Date: SXSW selected the film for their Documentary Comp section.
