Screening: A Crude Awakening: The Oil Crash

Screening Monday 24th September, 2007

A Crude Awakening: The OilCrash, produced and directed by award-winning duo Basil Gelpke and Ray McCormack, tells the story of how our civilization’s addiction to oil puts it on a collision course with geology.

Compelling, intelligent, and highly entertaining, the film visits with the world’s top experts and comes to a startling, but logical conclusion – our industrial society, built on cheap and readily available oil, must be completely re-imagined and overhauled.

Shot on location at oil fields in Azerbaijan, Venezuela, the Middle East and Texas the film provides not only questions, but possible solutions to the most perplexing and important economic, environmental and public policy issue of our time.
