The Oil Machine

Directed by Emma Davie

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 to economists, young activists, pension fund managers – and considers how this machine can be tamed, dismantled, or repurposed.
