Petroleum's Progress

Top of page

Archival footage and commercials provide a brief and entertaining history of oil and oil by-products, and of the creation of the petro-chemical industry. Modern society has developed a frightening dependence on oil. Not only do oil by-products keep us warm and mobile, they help to feed, clean, clothe and entertain us. There is no substitute for oil as yet, and the film makes the point succinctly.
