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.

"Lots of surprises for those who have heard that the vast refuge is barren.  San Francisco Chronicle

Editor's Note
This fascinating documentary aims to charter the various problems that have beset Alaska due to the coveted oil resources the region houses. Narrator Peter Coyote provides a precise summation of events as political leaders deliver varying positions on Alaska's situation, and the film becomes highly personal as it depicts the lives of the Native American populace who dwell there. Along with some precious wildlife, the Native American's once again find their presence unwelcome, as a battle to harness Alaska's energy resources rages around them. A powerful portrait of a part of Alaska that looks set to lose its natural charm and beauty if events continue to escalate, OIL ON ICE is a sad portrayal of a community battling against the powers-that-be.
