4:00pm – 6:00pm

Joukowsky Forum, 111 Thayer Street

The Oil Machine explores the United Kingdom's economic, historical and emotional entanglement with North Sea Oil, and highlights how deeply oil is embedded in society, from high finance to cheap consumer goods. It brings together a wide range of voices from oil company executives, economists, young activists, scientists, and pension fund managers who are demanding change. A Q&A with producer Sonja Henrici will follow the screening.
