Série « The Epic of Black Gold »

The golden age of the Majors

De Jean-Pierre Beaurenaut et Yves Billon ( episode 1/6 )

Synopsis

OIL has changed the face of the earth, it has modeled man. Our history, our wars, our living conditions, our standard of living, our working hours, our politics, our basic needs, our lives are totally influenced by oil.

Our aim is to tell this fabulous story of our planet in a cluster of six 52’ films. The series will start at the very beginning in the middle of the 19th century. Technical progress, economy, history, environment and geopolitical strategies will all be examined and analyzed in the telling of a story which is as exciting for man as his own evolution.
