Toast

A classic energy film that reveals our underlying dependence on fossil fuels.

"A mind-blowing illustration of the misuse of energy." Energy and the Way We Live

One of the most effective energy films ever made, TOAST illustrates our underlying dependence on fossil fuels, and takes as its example the production and distribution of a commonplace item, bread. Using only flowing images set to music, it documents all the fossil fuel inputs, from the oil well head (to make the fertilizer to grow the wheat, etc.) to the toaster.
