"Houston, We Have A Problem" (5th Annual Anti-Corporate Film Festival
Against a backdrop of global warming, "peak oil", and more than 200,000 gallons of crude pouring into the Gulf of Mexico every day, world energy demand continues to grow. And the aggressive strategies for securing access to oil now center around being the highest bidder or the biggest bully.
This revealing look inside the energy capital of the world records in their own words the Texas oilmen who feed America's ferocious oil habit the old-fashioned way Ã¢" even as they admit that the drug of cheap oil could ultimately be the nation's downfall.
Along the way, the film makes clear that the next generation of "wildcatters" will strike it rich in alternative sources of fuel such algae, and that we must embrace renewable energy if we want to save the planet and ourselves. Directed by Nicole Torre. (USA, 2009, 82 minutes)
