Oil on Ice premieres at MountainFilm in Telluride

Highlighting the controversies surrounding the pursuit of oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, this hour-long documentary illustrates the inextricably linked issues at stake in the conflict between conservation and energy extraction interests.

“We are thrilled to premiere in Telluride at this particular time,” said Dale Djerassi, producer of Oil on Ice. “Oil is on everyone’s mind right now, and we need to understand the consequences of our seemingly unquenchable thirst for oil. This premiere is the first step in the Oil on Ice project that will inform Americans of what’s at risk in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.”

For 25 years MountainFilm in Telluride has created a unique wedding of films, photographers, filmmakers, scientists, adventurers, authors, journalists, and political and environmental activists who annually rendezvous share their work and ideas.

About Oil on Ice
OIL ON ICE (www.oilonice.org) is a multi-faceted media project about the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska and the conflict over drilling for oil there. The one-hour documentary film, WebDVD and Website examine the battle over one of America’s last great wild places, which is currently at the center of a national energy debate. OIL ON ICE shows how the fate of the refuge is inextricably linked to decisions our nation makes about energy policy, transportation choices, and other seemingly unrelated matters. And as the film concludes, the culture and livelihood of the native Gwich’in Indians and the survival of migratory wildlife are caught in the balance.
