CONCERNED CITIZEN is a feature documentary about Dr. Riki Ott, a whistleblower who predicted the Exxon Valdez oil spill hours before it happened. A toxicologist, author, and activist, Riki has been organizing the Gulf coast communities to recover from the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster. She is also helping to spearhead the campaign with Ultimate Civics, one that will introduce a Constitutional amendment to end corporate personhood, and to reform campaign finance and contributions. CONCERNED CITIZEN also shows viewers how other citizens have followed Dr. Ott's example to change and strengthen efforts to curb oil pollution of America's lands, rivers and coastal waters.
