drbubb Posted July 14, 2007 Report Share Posted July 14, 2007 MAJOR STUDIOS WON'T DISTRIBUTE it, despite being offered the chance. So the producer has "gone guerilla" to promote it through his own website: http://www.oilcrashmovie.com/film.html The film includes in-depth, thought-provoking interviews with Colin Campbell, Matt Simmons, Roscoe Bartlett, David Goodstein, Matt Savinar, Terry Lynn Karl, Fadhil Chalabi, Robert Ebel and many others. Shot on location at oil fields in Azerbaijan, Venezuela, the Middle East and Texas, with original music by Daniel Schnyder and Philip Glass, the film provides not only questions, but possible solutions to the most perplexing and important economic, environmental and public policy issue of our time. One year ago, in a report commissioned by the U.S. Department of Energy, Robert L. Hirsch challenged the notion that the free market can solve the onrushing emergency: "The world has never faced a problem like Peak Oil. Without massive mitigation more than a decade before the fact, the problem will be pervasive and will not be temporary. Previous energy transitions (wood to coal and coal to oil) were gradual and evolutionary; oil peaking will be abrupt and revolutionary." MOVIE TRAILER: Watch the trailer in various formats on green.tv : http://www.green.tv/crude_awakening Blast from the Past: Listen to President Jimmy Carter's radio adress to the nation on the energy crisis, April 18, 1977 - courtesy of www.peakoil.com : http://www.peakoil.com/modules/zina/jec_1977_0418.mp3 = = = FS has also picked it up, on this week's interview: http://www.netcastdaily.com/broadcast/fsn2007-0714-2.asx (I found the interview rather boring, but was happy to see the promotional effort) After the success of An Inconvenient Truth, which won an Oscar, why has hollywood found this so difficult to take on?
