Editorial Reviews

Oil on Ice, narrated by Peter Coyote, is an award-winning documentary that connects the fate of Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska and the conflict over drilling for oil there to critical decisions America makes about energy policy and transportation choices. The film examines the battle over one of America's last great wild places, which is currently at the center of a national energy debate. Caught in the balance are the Gwich'in Indians and the migratory wildlife in this fragile ecosystem. Through stunning footage and in-depth interviews, this entertaining film links seemingly unrelated matters such as energy independence, global warming, Native American rights, wildlife and wild lands protection.

DVD Features:
Interviews:Bonus Interviews with Rocky Mountain Institute CEO Amory Lovins and Sierra Club CEO Carl Pope.
Other:Oil On Ice Short Film. Grassroots Action Tool kit (with DVD-ROM content and web links.

This film made me want to travel to Alaska and meet the natives and have a look at them one last time in shame. We don't own this land. This land owns us and if we forget that the human race will vanish very soon. A striking photography and beautiful music will make this film an unforgettable experience. The impact of oil drilling on natives is well explained and very well understood after watching this film. The impact on all of us on the long run becomes quite clear after watching the film. This film is a must see.

Extremely biased. Many beautiful shots of the Brooks Range area nowhere near the proposed drilling area (1%) of the whole ANWR area. Little of the proposed drilling area (and nothing in winter.)

Nothing (!) seen of the existing north slope drilling area to actually see what the effect would be on caribou, polar bears etc...

The Gwich'in natives who don't live in the area (opposed) get wayyy more time than the Inupiat (balanced pro/con) who do live there.

And how about this news item :"The Gwich'in tribal council in the Northwest Territories has signed a memorandum of understanding with a Calgary-based exploration company to search for oil and gas on 350 square kilometres of land east of Inuvik, N.W.T." Of course we don't hear anything about this hypocrisy.

The former Alaska Governor gets a few seconds of airtime. Otherwise nothing from the other 99.9% of Alaskans.

The radical enviromentalists - yes. Regular Americans - no.

Biased to the max!

(But Peter Coyote's narration voice is the best in the world.)

Gorgeous film score music featuring legendary cellist Joan Jeanrenaud. Her playing is incredibly emotive throughout the album. Jeanrenaud executes the upper range of the cello like no other. A special treat is the singing of Alaskan native and Gwich'In Activist Adeline Peter Raboff who also appears in the film.
