Petrol - Carburant - Kraftstoff

BRD 1965

From oil drills in the Libyan desert to the petrol pump – the production chain is portrayed that delivers the fuel used to power road construction machines and send convertibles speeding through German forests. Made by Hugo Niebeling for the Bochum-based Aral AG company with original music by Oskar Sala, perhaps no other corporate film has garnered so many awards. “Niebeling doesn’t like the word ‘avantgardism’ when it’s applied to his films, but his art is pioneering in the sense that it added the essential creative elements to the genre of the corporate film to allow it to assume the status of an art form.” (Friedrich Namthag, 1969)
