Following the sell our success of Ride the Wave last month, we’ve invited the same filmmakers back to screen their new film.
The Oil Machine explores our economic, historical and emotional entanglement with oil by looking at the conflicting imperatives around North Sea oil. This invisible machine at the core of our economy and society now faces an uncertain future as activists and investors demand change. Is this the end of oil? The Oil Machine brings together a wide range of voices from oil company executives, economists, young activists, pension fund managers and considers how this machine can be tamed, dismantled, or repurposed.
The screening will be followed by a discussion with:
- Jake Molloy, Aberdeen Regional Organiser for RMT Workers Union, representing offshore energy workers
- Scott Herrett, Just Transition Organiser, Friends of the Earth Scotland
- Alison Stuart, Director, Aberdeen Climate Action; Manager, NESCAN Hub
We provide the popcorn. Bring a bottle if you wish.
These screenings are free and all donations are given to charity.
They can be busy so email: firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve seats.
