The film’s Peninsula premiere will be followed by a discussion with its producers and directors, Gerard Ungerman and Audrey Brohy.

Ungerman and Brohy produced and directed the internationally acclaimed film "Hidden Wars of Desert Storm", which was released in 2000, and then turned their investigative and filmmaking talents to making "The Oil Factor". Based on a year and a half of investigation and a three-month trip covering Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan, "The Oil Factor" looks at both the human cost and the greater geo-strategic picture of George Bush's "war on terror". The filmmakers look at the patterns of energy use and energy policy in the U.S. and the Middle East’s hold on the world’s oil reserves and asks, were the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan really meant to reduce terrorist threats, or were they meant to guarantee that America can continue to consume outrageous amounts of petroleum?

Along with solid facts and figures, clear, illustrative maps and graphics and original footage shot on location, "The Oil Factor" features such personalities as Zbigniew Brzezinski, Noam Chomsky, The Project for the New American Century Director Gary Schmitt, best-seller _Taliban_ author Ahmed Rashid, and the Pentagon's Karen Kwiatkowski.

$7 - $15 sliding scale admission benefits Peninsula Peace and Justice Center. Presented in conjunction with the Spangenberg Film Society.
