ACMI, Docplay and EFFA present THE OIL MACHINE

Emma Davie's impactful documentary explores our economic, historical and emotional entanglement with the oil industry.

There is an invisible machine at the core of our economy and society that is now facing an uncertain future as activists and investors demand change: the oil industry. But could this be 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, young activists to pension fund managers and considers how this machine can be tamed, dismantled, or repurposed.

The Oil Machine will be available to stream on Docplay from Monday 22 April 2024. Join us in the cinema for a very special preview screening.

From the discovery of huge oil fields off the coast of Scotland to their mass privatisation during the Thatcher era, The Oil Machine highlights how oil became the invisible engine driving UK economic and public policy. In the wake of COP26 in Glasgow, demand for climate action has become a key societal concern and the pressure on both oil companies and the government continues to mount. Bringing together a wide range of voices, from industry executives and economists to young activists, Davie offers a visceral and thought-provoking interrogation into how this insidious machine might be dismantled.
