Green Visions Film Series

Location: Vortragssaal der Bibliothek, Gasteig, Rosenheimerstr. 5, Munich

Film Screening and Discussion with Werner Zittel (ASPO Germany)

Switzerland, Basil Gelpke/Ray McCormack, 85 min.
English original, German subtitles

Peak Oil: This is what the moment will be called when the oil production maximum has been reached and demand will thus be greater than production levels. The film provides an impressive insight into our civilization’s dependency on oil and explores the conflict between the high demand of “black gold” and the geological nature of the Earth. In doing so, the filmmaker not only raises questions, but also offers approaches towards solving probably the most important economic and environmental-political challenge of our time.
