Our Oil and other tales - 2nd October

We are showing Our Oil and other tales next Tuesday, 2nd October. The venue is the Friends Meeting House, 6 Mount St,Manchester, M2 5NS. It starts at 7.30pm. Look out for the notice for "Manchester Projectile Films".

The film is described as:
"THE VENEZUELAN GOVERNMENT had liked previous Gattacicova Collective productions (for example, Another way is possible ...in Venezuela) so much that they offered financial support for their next project. But the documentary they then made examined the issues of oil production in the country: from the impact on the environment and indigenous populations to the way the industry is run.

The bureaucrats of the Ministry of Culture realised they didn´t like such a close look at their involvement with multinational and northamerican corporations, so they tried to suppress the movie.

Only with the help of local activists a few copies escaped censorship.

Now you can watch the documentary that Hugo Chavez tried to keep secret..."
