Price: €14.00


The film starts with some top­i­cal facts con­cern­ing oil today so as to root our film in our present time and shows how impor­tant oil is in all the fields of human activ­i­ties. This intro­duc­tion allows us to briefly tackle the main themes we later deve­l­ope in our film. These themes are closely linked with one another and encom­pass a wide range of dif­fer­ent issues such as sci­ence, tech­nolo­gies, envi­ron­ment, econ­omy, geopol­i­tics and geostrate­gies. The film then con­stantly switchs from back to present-from the pio­neers’ period at the end of the 19th cen­tury until today– so as to recall the main stages of an adven­ture with tremen­dous stakes. The film ends on a ques­tion about the future of oil. Indeed although this energy is not renew­able there are huge reserves which haven’t been exploited yet. This fact could let us think that oil will still be an essen­tial ele­ment of the world econ­omy in the decades to come.
