Exclusive Preview & Transatlantic Discussion
Watch the film, meet the makers, and start a conversation about the global impact of oil and plastics on your campus.
On Friday, February 2nd, Bullfrog Films is pleased to invite you to an exclusive screening and discussion for educators in the U.S. and Canada, featuring a compelling new documentary shedding light on our dependence on fossil fuels. The screening will start at noon EST / 9am PST, and will be followed by a dynamic conversation with the filmmakers and subjects. During this event, you’ll get to watch the full film, meet the makers and find out how to bring this program to your campus during the spring semester or Earth Month.
THE OIL MACHINE highlights the complexities of how oil is embedded in our society – from high finance to cheap consumer goods – and brings together a wide range of voices from oil company executives, economists, young activists, workers, scientists, and pension fund managers demanding change.
We are in the midst of offering a series of special academic screenings at US universities and colleges in partnership with Twin Seas Media. These events include screenings followed by virtual conversations with the Director, Emma Davie, Producer Sonja Henrici, and film participants such as Executive Producer James Marriott, who are based in the United Kingdom. Campus-wide stand-alone screenings, for which you create your own discussion panels, will also now be available.
THE OIL MACHINE is a powerful catalyst for meaningful conversations that raise awareness about the environmental impact of oil and plastics on our planet, inspiring dialogue and action. The film will strongly resonate with environmental studies programs, business schools, law schools, energy institutes, environmental policy and management, and sustainability initiatives on campus. With a global and UK focus, the film is deeply relevant to US audiences.
The film has received rave reviews:
"The Oil Machine is a valuable teaching tool to prepare the next generation of climate advocates and community activists for the battle to secure their future. There are many alternatives to an oil-soaked economy but only one livable planet."
– Patrick Parenteau, Vermont Law and Graduate School
