It's time to talk about oil. How we extract it, how we use it, and who profits from it. Emma Davie's timely and cinematic film explores our economic, historical and emotional entanglement with oil by looking at the conflicting imperatives around North Sea oil.

Highlighting the complexities of how oil is embedded in our society - from high finance to cheap consumer goods – The Oil Machine brings together a wide range of voices from oil company executives, economists, young activists, pension fund managers and considers how this machine can be tamed, dismantled, or repurposed.

Essential and clear-sighted viewing, this urgent film brings the invisible machine at the core of our economy and society into focus, as the drama of global climate action plays out in the fight over North Sea oil.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Emma Davie and James Marriot, hosted by filmmaker Franny Armstrong.
