Paradise & Petrol

Stop a minute. Wake up and smell the oil.

If paradise really existed, it would most likely be located somewhere in the middle –east, just where now big oil reserves are now located. After I watched the performance of ‘Collectief Walden’ about greed. I wanted to know more about oil and the lost paradise. I asked Aron Eilander, a guest curator at the Bible museum to tell me some more about the link between paradise and petrol. After listening to his story I got even more curious. My research concludes with a 111 seconds compilation film. In the Youtube channel you can see the links of the films I used. The first four are interesting to watch, the perfume commercials were my private association to petrol and greed

This film is in Dutch only but I promise that next film will also be in English.
