When the Spill Hit Homer personalizes the impact of the Exxon Valdez oil spill. Homer was a quiet fishing village near Alaska's magnificent Price William Sound until it was hit by one of the greatest ecological disasters of our time.

The film provides a first-hand account of the spill's devastating impact on residents of this fishing port and nearby Alaskan Native villages, which rely on the sea for their subsistence. Residents tell their own sad and angry stories, providing dramatic evidence of the spill's devastation and the local frustration with Exxon's inadequate cleanup efforts.

The film is a useful tool for studying ecological disasters and the many lessons they provide.
