Thursday 5th October @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Explore our economic, historical and emotional entanglement with fossil fuels – can we break the bind in time?
How can we break our addition to oil? Join Medact Leeds for a screening of the new film The Oil Machine at 7pm on Thursday 5th October in Beeston Village Community Centre as part of the South Leeds Green Film Festival for an inspiring screening and conversation on our energy future.
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.
