About the film
This documentary reveals the significance of the influence of oil in today’s society. The supply of this fossil fuel is slowly drying up, yet many of the things we use are made from it. Oil is essential for the global economy.
The film examines the oil business in the British Isles and the North Sea. It tells the story of contemporary society’s pathological dependence on oil, a commodity that is non-renewable in the short term. We now have access to detailed knowledge regarding the consequences of the wasteful use of fossil fuels and how it can affect future generations, yet even in the 21st century, humanity is still heavily dependent on oil. Why haven’t we pulled the emergency brake and paid more heed to the future of our descendants? How have our economies become so intertwined with the oil business? This appealing film brings together the views of a wide range of experts, students, and activists.
