‘BIG MEN’ – Opens in HOUSTON this FRIDAY at Sundance Cinemas


Directed by RACHEL BOYNTON – Executive Produced by BRAD PITT

BIG MEN is a compelling documentary that follows what happens when Dallas-based oil exploration firm Kosmos Energy makes an enormous discovery off the coast of Ghana. Christened the Jubilee Field, this stunning deposit had the potential to return a staggering 2.2 billion in profit to the company and was the first commercial find in Ghana’s history. The film took seven years to complete and gives an unprecedented insider’s look at the origins of a new, successful American oil outfit, as well as capturing the complexities of the industry in Ghana and Nigeria. With Director Rachel Boynton’s astonishing access — from the camp of one of the key Nigerian militant groups (The Deadly Underdogs) to the New York boardrooms of private equity giant Blackstone Capital Partners — BIG MEN is present at every turn, taking viewers along for the ride as CEO Jim Mussleman and Kosmos Energy deal with African Presidents and kings and try to bring their profit back home. Called “a real-life “Chinatown” or “There Will Be Blood” by Variety critic Scott Foundas,BIG MEN is a story told as it happens, not reconstructed once the dust settles.

BIG MEN will be opening at Sundance Houston on Friday, June 6th and will be playing through June 12th.
