Oil Shale Town

Oil Shale Town is a personal documentary project focusing on the city Kiviõli (Stone Oil) in north east Estonia and on the local oil shale industry. Estonia is one of the biggest shale oil producers in the world and covers approximately 85% of it's energy needs through this source, allowing the country to be independent from the external energy sources. At the same time oil shale industry continues to have a negative impact on the countries environment.
