Bitter Sweet Oil – Film on Oil and Gas Exploration in Ghana

I got this invite for today, Thursday, in my e-mail and thought it might interest some of you.

Special Invitation to the Official Launch of Bitter Sweet Oil a Docu-Drama film on Oil &Gas exploration and Extraction in Ghana

The World Bank Ghana Office in collaboration with the Centre for Development Partnerships (CDP) & Media in Partnership for Development invites you to the Official Launch of Bitter Sweet Oil a Docu-Drama film on Oil &Gas exploration and Extraction in Ghana.

Date: Thursday, 7th October, 2010

Time: 5:30 pm

Venue: Silver Bird Cinema, Accra Shopping Mall.

So although I am not sure I understand what a “docu-drama” is, I do find it interesting to hear what the World Bank, which recently lended Ghana USD 300 million, and Centre for Development Partnerships, who I haven’t heard of before, have come up with. (Maybe it is the outcome of this call for proposals from last year? or related to the Oil and Gas dialog also of last year?)

Who’s views will they present? For who is the oil bitter and for who is it sweet?

I am also interested in seeing some visuals of this so-much-talked-about oil!

See you there?
