ArCCAT and University of Westminster Schools of Humanities, Law and Social Sciences invite you to a free screening of the powerful new film, The Oil Machine ( on 24 February, 13.00 – 14.30 at the Regents Street Cinema, 307 Regent Street, London W1B 2HW. 

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 conversation between 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 and Wojciech Ostrowski of the School of Social Sciences, facilitated by Lindsay Bremner.

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