Duration: 50’

Ten exploration workers from the oil and gas industry talk to camera for the first time in their life. As lovers of the Earth, experts of its rocks, and as members of the energy industry, they claim a place to talk about their industry and its future. In a world where climate change concerns are a priority and where alternative renewable energies seem to be advancing, this film explores how the energy transition should take place, asking some of the people who will be personally affected by this change: The workers of the oil industry. The film journeys from Brazil to Norway, unveiling different realities inside the oil industry as well as how oil workers negotiate, on a personal level and as members of their society, their ethical positions towards climate issues, renewable energies and the future of oil.
