We are delighted to announce that THE OIL MACHINE will be collaborating with Worldwide Climate and Justice Education Week to celebrate Earth Monthand bring the award-winning documentary to you!

This timely film delves into the complex dynamic of North Sea oil & gas and considers how the 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.

Accompanied by discussion guides and educational resources provided by Worldwide Climate and Justice Education Week, THE OIL MACHINE will be available to participants on a pay-what-you-can basis throughout Earth Month. The film can be booked on our Eventive site hereWhen checking out, we'd ask you to use the sliding scale to set the amount payable to an amount you'd usually pay for showing a film in your educational setting. For those who cannot afford to pay more, the film will be offered for a symbolic £10 (that's approximately $12.75 in U.S. dollars).
