Join the University of Westminster’s Schools of Architecture + Cities, the Humanities, Law, and the Social Sciences for a screening of the new film The Oil Machine on 24 February, 13.00 – 14.30 at the Regent Street Cinema, 307 Regent St., London W1B 2HW 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

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion hosted by Lindsay Bremner, School of Architecture + Cities with discussants Lucy Bond, School of Humanities, Julia Chryssostalis, Westminster Law School and member of the Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty campaign, Ruth MacKenzie, Westminster Law School, Wojciech Ostrowski of the School of Social Sciences and architecture students Antoni Canyelles and Maja Kurantowicz.

The screening is free, but booking is required as cinema numbers are limited.
