The film reveals the hidden infrastructure of oil from the offshore rigs and the buried pipelines to its flow through the stock markets of London. As the North Sea industry struggles to meet the need to cut carbon emissions, oil workers see their livelihoods under threat, and investors seek to protect their assets. Meanwhile a younger generation of climate activists are catalysed by the signs of impending chaos, and the very real threat of global sea level rises. The Oil Machine (directed by Emma Davie and produced by Sonja Henrici) explores the complexities of transitioning away from oil and gas as a society and considers how quickly we can do it.
In collaboration with EFFY, Environmental Studies, and YSEC, Producer Sonja Henrici will be traveling from the UK to open discussion about their film immediately following the film screening.
