When

Monday, 30 Oct 2023 at 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM


What can stakeholders in the UK and Norway learn from each other when it comes to hotly debated issues like state control of energy companies, working conditions in the offshore industry, new oil fields like Rosebank, and the urgent need for a Just Transition?

Join us for a free online film screening of THE OIL MACHINE followed by a discussion on Monday 30th October at 18:00 (GMT) and 19:00 (CET). 

THE OIL MACHINE is an award-winning documentary that 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. The film has successfully toured the UK and international film festivals over the past 12 months, and it has been praised as a great conversation starter.

THE OIL MACHINE: Hva Norge og Storbritannia kan lære av hverandre om olje og gass

Hva kan vi i Storbritannia og Norge lære av hverandre når det kommer til svært omdiskuterte spørsmål som statlig eierskap av energiselskaper, arbeidsforhold i offshoreindustrien, nye oljefelt som Rosebank og det økende behovet for en rettferdig omstilling av petroleumsindustrien?

Bli med ​​på en gratis online filmvisning av THE OIL MACHINE etterfulgt av en panelsamtale, mandag 30. oktober, kl. 18 (GMT) og 19 (CET).

THE OIL MACHINE er en prisvinnende dokumentarfilm som 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. Filmen har vært på turné i Storbritannia og internasjonale filmfestivaler de siste 12 månedene, og den har fått ros for å legge opp til en god debatt om framtiden til olje- og gassindustrien.

Filmen vil bli introdusert av regissøren Emma Davie. Etter den digitale filmvisningen kan du 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:

Jake Molloy - RMT, fagforening som organiserer i olje- og gassnæringen i Skottland

Camilla Houeland – forsker ved Fafo

Asle Reime - Industri Energi

Elise Tunstrom -  Manifest Analyse

Gabrielle Jeliazkov - 'Our Power'

Moderert av Aled D Fisher (Naturvernforbundet)

Dette digitale arrangementet lanserer en serie med fysiske filmvisninger og panelsamtaler over hele Norge i november i samarbeid med Broen til framtiden.
