Brown Bag Lunch and Film Series

August 20, 2018

The Permian Basin Petroleum Museum, 1500 I-20 West, Midland, has scheduled “The Secrets of the Seven Sisters” from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, as part of the Brown Bag Lunch and Film Series.

Since the discovery of oil, world leaders have sought to control the balance of power. “Seven Sisters” was a common term for the seven multinational oil companies of the “Consortium for Iran” cartel, which dominated the global petroleum industry from the 1940s to the 1970s. Alluding to the seven mythological Pleiades sisters fathered by the Titan Atlas, the business usage was popularized in the 1950s. The 48-minute documentary video reveals a much deeper understanding for the cause of past and ongoing wars in the Middle East.

Bring a brown bag lunch. Tea and cookies will be provided.

Admission is free and open to the public.
