This film shows the disaster of the Kuwaitian oil fields in flames, with few interviews and no explanatory narration. Hell itself is presented in such beautiful sights and music that one has to be fascinated by it.

After Saddam Hussein had the Kuwait Oil wells lit up, teams from all over the world fought those fires for months. They had to save the oil resources, as well as reduce air pollution. The different teams developed different techniques of extinguishing the fires. From TNT-shockwaves blowing out the flames to Tank-mounted twin MIG-jet-engines (from Hungary) blasting away the flames (and nearly lifting the tank into the air), man's emergency creativity can be seen at it's best.

This is a little indy film out of Germany. It's a little unfocused, but touches on a lot of interesting things. The director does some nice things like film edits that hammer home his points. Hard to pigeonhole, but if you like oval office figures and the intelligence advisors, you may find this to your liking. A lot of blue sky thinking about art and technology. Some nice interweaving of the old story about LSD testing at Harvard and similar exercises in academic bad taste. If you're wondering about the Fires of Kuwait, turns out Kuwait was one of the official test subjects for the LSD experiments during the 1980's. Think: My Dinner with Andre meets the X-Files
