Event Details

How can we break our addition to oil? Join us for an inspiring FREE screening of The Oil Machine at The Tower, Helensburgh on January 18th (2 screenings, 4pm & 7pm) followed by a conversation on our energy future. Tickets will be available to collect from The Tower Box Office and Nature’s Harvest from Thursday. As seating is limited, please only request a ticket if you are sure you will be able to attend.

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.
