The follow-up to Who Killed The Electric Car? examines a new world, five years later, where hybrids have become commonplace and electric cars are here to stay.
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.
With almost every major car maker now jumping to produce new electric models, Revenge follows the race to be the first, the best, and to win the hearts and minds of the public around the world. It’s not just the next generation of green cars that’s on the line. It’s the future of the automobile itself.
If you can’t make it to the premiere, the Documentary Channel will be airing an interview featuring director Chris Paine on April 22, 2011 at 8pm.
The 10th Annual Tribeca Film Festival will take place April 20 – May 1, 2011
