Ballad of Oil and Water
Ballad of Oil and Water is an experimental film combining performative intervention and street art with documentary footage of environmental activists preparing a tree-sit. The resulting two worlds comment on our blindness towards consumer culture’s ability to act as an alternate reality, masking its connection to global environmental destruction.
