On May 27th from 4 pm Timespan presents the second screening of Tidal Cinema:
The Oil Machine 2022
Directed by Emma Davie, produced by Sonja Henrici
The Oil Machine explores our economic, historical and emotional entanglement with fossil fuels by looking at the conflicting imperatives around North Sea oil & gas. This invisible machine at the core of our economy and society now faces an uncertain future as activists and investors demand change. Is this the end of oil?
The film brings together a wide range of voices from oil company executives, economists, young activists, oil workers, pension fund managers, and considers how this machine can be tamed, dismantled or repurposed.
Starting at 5:30 pm Timespan will host a discussion led by James Marriot, key contributor to the film, co-author of Crude Britannia (Pluto Press, 2021), and member of Platform London.
