Synopsis

Part document of the past, part imagination of the future, Crude Progress tells the story of the rise and fall of the oil industry in the Orkney Islands.
Set to the music of James MacMillan the film mimics a folk tale, warning against the seduction of capitalism and the illusion of progress.
