Who Killed the Electric Car?
A documentary about electric cars, hybrids, hydrogen and the future of transportation.
EVENT: Saturday, July 18 from 7:00–9:00pm (vegetarian potluck at 6:30pm)
The documentary feature film Who Killed the Electric Car? premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2006 before its release by Sony Pictures to critical acclaim in 100 U.S. markets. The film was the third highest-grossing theatrical documentary of 2006 and screened with An Inconvenient Truth in many markets.
Currently in wide DVD release, the film investigates the events leading to the quiet destruction of thousands of new, radically efficient electric vehicles. Through interviews and narrative, the film paints a picture of an industrial culture whose aversion to change and reliance on oil may be deeper then its ability to embrace ready solutions.
