Fat of the Land
1995, 55:41 minutes, colour, English
In the first kitchen-grease powered road movie - five women tour America fueling up on the waste fat that their fellow travellers have left behind. From New York to San Francisco, the women careen across the nation, stopping at greasy spoons, asking for leftover frying oil to fuel their vehicle.
Through interviews and chance encounters, the video sardonically critiques the stranglehold petroleum has on our economy, while investigating one fuel for the future - vegetable oil.
Shot in an energetic style consistent with the do-it-yourself impetus of the project, this documentary humorously engages ordinary people across the United States in a serious discussion about transportation fuel.
