Storyline

Blind Spot is a documentary film that illustrates the current oil and energy crisis that our world is facing. Whatever measures of ignorance, greed, wishful thinking, we have put ourselves at a crossroad, which offers two paths with dire consequences. If we continue to burn fossil fuels we will choke the life out of the planet and if we don't our way of life will collapse. Written by Adolfo Doring

How we so easily choose not to see what is going on around us.
6 July 2012 | by (Glasgow) – See all my reviews

Powerful and very well made, should be mandatory viewing for everyone. Subjects like peak oil and climate change are often a turn off for friends as a suggestion for a film, but this is short enough and hard hitting enough that even the most blinkered would think twice about what we are doing to the planet. In a world where lady gaga has 26 million followers on twitter but films like this and their subject matter are still widely ignored... one wonders if mankind is worth the saving. If this film got you concerned and you want to know more.. check out 'Collapse', 'life at the end of the empire' or if just for the facts.. 'Chris Martenson - crash course'
