HOW OUR FUTURE IS SHAPED BY OIL
OIL has changed the face of the earth, it has modeled man. Our history, our wars, our living conditions, our standard of living, our working hours, our politics, our basic needs, our lives are totally influenced by oil. Our aim is to tell this fabulous story of our planet in a cluster of four 52′ films. The series will start at the very beginning in the middle of the 19th century.
Technical progress, economy, history, environment and geopolitical strategies will all be examined and analyzed in the telling of a story which is as exciting for man as his own evolution. The great figures of the epic of black gold, its greatest historical events will be met in real life and in archive footage from all over the world: (USA, Venezuela, Mexico, the Middle East, Russia).
The narration will be made by an informative commentary and the interviews of specialists. The oil fields will one day go dry. How is man preparing for this unavoidable change, will he be ready?
