Dir. Emma Davie, UK, 2022, 82 mins. PG

On Saturday 12th November, we welcome Liz Richmond from Extinction Rebellion Plymouth, and Lucas De Koning from Community Climate Centre for a Q&A after the film. Extinction Rebellion Plymouth will also be present for a discussion in the bar on the 15th November.

We are also pleased to announce that all screenings will be preceded by Surface Tension, a documentary short film by Devon-based filmmaker Amanda Bluglass & Zena Holloway.

The Oil Machine explores our economic, historical and emotional entanglement with oil by looking at the conflicting imperatives around North Sea oil. 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 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.

Surface Tension
What lies beneath the surface of Britain's rivers? Our relationship with our waterways is a romantic one, but England's precious chalk streams are as polluted as they were half a decade ago. Surprising discoveries are revealed in this poignant reflection on life, above and below the waterline.
