Energy Country

In Deborah Statman’s Energy Country, images of the frenzied detritus of trading floors, smart weaponry,
and the religious right are woven together with scenes depicting the petrochemical landscapes of
Southeast Texas. The film interrogates how land use policy serves the global oil and energy industry and
highlights ideological linkages between nationalism, foreign aggression, and fundamentalism.
