HOUSTON WE HAVE A PROBLEM stands out in the surge of films that address “green” issues. It takes a close examination inside the energy capital of the world to see America's dangerous appetite for oil consumption.The film traces the history of oil drilling in America and how the United States came to rely on foreign oil, from the Texas oilmen themselves, tracking Congress' empty promises for alternative energy since the 1970s. The energy policy of the USA has only been a strategy of defense, not offense, problems (like the recent Gulf disaster, an inevitable tragedy) that extend far beyond profit, politics, and party lines. However, a new form of “Wildcatting” in alternatives is changing the oil industry and the country. See and Hear the confessions of oilmen, who work in the trenches every day, scrambling to feed America’s ferocious appetite.HOUSTON WE HAVE A PROBLEM brings both sides together, seeking solutions, making it clear that we must embrace all forms of alternatives in order to save the planet and ourselves.
Director Nicole Torre has gathered exclusive interviews with an A-list cast of Texas oil barons, Wildcatters, and top executives, including the former president of Shell Oil, the chairman of BP Capital, Sen. Harry Reid, the US Senate Majority Leader, Van Jones, Founder of Green for All, and Middle East adviser Joanne Herring, who married the founder of Enron and was the basis for Julia Roberts' role in Charlie Wilson's War. Watch what everyone is calling "a must see film at this time in history".
