UistFilm Presents: The Oil Machine

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.

“Powerful documentary – essential viewing” Brian Ferguson – The Scotsman

 “A beautiful piece of work, hypnotic & mesmerising and incredibly emotional – I learned so much from watching this”  Janice Forsyth, BBC Radio Scotland – Afternoon Show.
