RASEI hosting a screening of The Oil Machine

Our economic, historical and emotional entanglement with North Sea Oil gets ever more complex as we hurtle towards climate breakdown. Is the era of North Sea oil over?

Join us in SEEC C120 for a screening of this documentary hosted by RASEI, following by a panel discussion with the film makers and members of the RASEI community. 

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?

By highlighting the complexities of how oil is embedded in our society - from high finance to cheap consumer goods – The Oil Machine brings together a wide range of voices from oil company executives, economists, youngactivists, pension fund managers and considers how this machine can be tamed, dismantled, or repurposed.

We have five to ten years to control our oil addiction, and yet the licensing of new oil fields continues in direct contradiction with the Paris Climate Agreement. This documentary looks at how the drama of global climate action is playing out in the fight over North Sea oil.
