RADiUS-TWC has acquired the U.S. rights to the The Great Invisible,  the eco-documentary which won the Grand Jury Award at the South by Southwest Film Festival earlier this year. Written and directed by Margaret Brown, the film chronicles the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf Coast through the perspectives of the area’s survivors, fishermen, and oil men. Brown travels through towns in Alabama, Louisiana, and Texas, interviewing residents still reeling from the damage to the environment and the local fishing industry.

The Great Invisible is slated for release later this year.
