According to Revenge of the Electric Car, the electric car is back with a vengeance, and we're excited to be screening the film at this year's festival.
In 2006, as many as 5,000 modern electric cars were destroyed by the major car companies that built them. Today, less than 5 years later, the electric car is back... with a vengeance. In Revenge of the Electric Car, director Chris Paine takes his film crew behind the closed doors of Nissan, GM, and the Silicon Valley start-up Tesla Motors to find the story of the global resurgence of electric cars. Without using a single drop of foreign oil, this new generation of car is America’s future: fast, furious, and cleaner than ever.
Have you taken revenge for the electric car by converting a gas car, installing a charging station or doing something else to promote electric vehicles? The filmmakers want you to share your story.
