THE OIL MACHINE comes to Norway after a successful year touring the UK and international film festivals. This timely documentary film delves into the complex dynamics of North Sea oil & gas and considers how this machine can be tamed, dismantled, or repurposed. Through the voices of different stakeholders, THE OIL MACHINE explores the complexities of transitioning away from oil and gas as a society and considers how quickly we can do it.

After the screening join in the panel discussion to explore similarities and differences in the UK’s and Norway’s approach to oil and gas, and focus on what’s needed for a just transition in Norway. With Matilde Regina Bakhtiari (Fellesforbundet), Ingrid Eline Barrabès Gørrisen (Natur og Ungdom) and Ole Hagen (El og IT Forbundet). Event hosted by Climate Scientist Kikki (Helga) Flesche Kleiven from Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research.

This event is presented in collaboration with Broen til framtiden, Norway’s alliance for a just transition between trade unions, environmental organisations, the Church, and others.


THE OIL MACHINE kommer til Norge etter et vellykket år på turné i Storbritannia og på internasjonale filmfestivaler. Denne svært aktuelle dokumentarfilmen tar opp de kompliserte temaene knyttet til olje og gass i Nordsjøen i Storbritannia og drøfter hvordan oljemaskinen kan temmes og omstilles til noe annet. Gjennom stemmene til ulike interesser utforsker THE OIL MACHINE de vanskeligste utfordringene ved omstillingen vekk fra olje og gass og diskuterer hvor raskt vi kan få det til.

Etter filmvisningen, kan alle bli med på en panelsamtale om likheter og forskjeller mellom Storbritannias og Norges tilnærming til olje og gass, og hva som trengs for en rettferdig omstilling i Norge. Med Matilde Regina Bakhtiari (Fellesforbundet), Ingrid Eline Barrabès Gørrisen (Natur og Ungdom) og Ole Hagen (El og IT Forbundet). Arrangementet ledes av klimaforsker Kikki (Helga) Flesche Kleiven fra Bjerknessenteret for klimaforskning.

Filmvisningen og panelsamtalen arrangeres i samarbeid med Broen til framtiden, Norges allianse mellom fagforeninger, miljøorganisasjoner, Kirken og andre for en rettferdig omstilling.

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.
