The Film

Named after a refinery now owned by Shell Oil, Norco, Louisiana is home to two distinct communities — one black and one white. Though separated by mere blocks, their realities are worlds apart. African American residents who believe pollution is affecting their health demand to be relocated. The white neighborhoods, largely home to employees of Norco, see no problems, and neither does the company. Fenceline shows how one small community and one big corporation struggle to come to terms.
