From the Filmmakers:
The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is one of America’s last great wildplaces. Our dependence on fossil fuels for energy is a global crisis.The development and implementation of clean, renewable energysources is an objective upheld by people across the political spectrum.The disappearance of indigenous cultures on our planet is decried byanthropologists and humanitarians around the world.In
Oil on Ice
, we have attempted to show the viewer that these issues,although frequently considered separately, are in fact inextricablyintertwined.
Oil on Ice
is a 57-minute documentary film that undertakes to ex-plore the story behind the headlines about the Arctic National Wild-life Refuge and the debate over drilling for oil there. The abundanceand variety of wildlife that lives in, or annually migrates to, the ArcticRefuge is featured. Existing oil extraction and transportation activi-ties in neighboring regions are seen. Our dependence on fossil fuelsproduces air pollutiants that lead to negative health effects and globalclimate change. Conservation and efficiency measures that greatlyreduce these emmissions, combined with cleaner, safer, renewablealternatives to fossil fuels, are considered by a variety of experts andpolicy-makers. The Gwich’in Athabascan and Inupiat Eskimo culturesare revealed by Alaskan Natives, themselves.These are a lot of subjects to try to cover in less than one hour.Rather than deal with each issue exhaustively, we have tried to touchon the range of issues as an interconnected whole.As a variety of interests attempt to influence policy and as policymak-ers debate these issues, it is important for the public to stay informedand involved. In
Oil on Ice
, we hope and believe that we have made apositive contribution toward that goal.
