Speed Of Rust

An Eco-Thriller Hybrid Documentary Coming Soon on Waterbear.

The experts predicted the inevitable fate of the FSO Safer, a mammoth oil tanker moored in the Red Sea off the coast of Yemen.

A mass of rotting steel holding four times more oil than the Exxon Valdez, Safer threatened ecosystems, shipping lanes and the welfare of millions in the region. When she broke apart or exploded - and it was always just a matter of time - an unprecedented catastrophe lay ahead.

Filmed in Yemen, Oman and the United States, SPEED OF RUST takes us to the Safer's last days as Ibrahim, one of the doomed vessel's engineers, recounts from his hospital bed what he remembers of the Safer's final moments.

A hybrid, genre-bending documentary, SPEED OF RUST is part eco-thriller and part cautionary tale that acts as a clarion call for the risks we run when threats are ignored, and demonstrates what's possible when the global community tackles its problems head-on.
