Film Screening: Crude Impact
Last night at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco.
7pm and 9pm.
CRUDE IMPACT is a powerful and timely story that deftly explores the
interconnection between human domination of the planet and the
discovery and use of oil.
This documentary film exposes our deeprooted dependency on the availability of fossil fuel energy and examines the future implications of peak oil — the point in time when the amount of petroleum worldwide begins a steady, inexorable decline.
Journeying from the West African delta region to the heart of the Amazon rainforest, from Washington to Shanghai, from early man to the unknown future, CRUDE IMPACT chronicles the collision of our insatiable appetite for oil with the rights and livelihoods of indigenous cultures, other species and the planet itself.
It is a thought-provoking story filled with discovery, sorrow, outrage, humor and ultimately, hope.
