Revenge of the Electric Car Directed by Chris Paine
"Fascinating ... a hugely entertaining portrait.” Hollywood Reporter
By 2006, as many as 5,000 electric cars were destroyed by the major car companies that built them. Today, the electric car is back… with a vengeance.
Without using a single drop of foreign oil, this new generation of car is America’s future: fast, furious, and cleaner than ever. Narrated by Tim Robbins, and from the director of Who Killed the Electric Car?, the film goes behind the closed doors of Nissan, GM, the Silicon Valley start-up Tesla Motors and an independent car converter to find the story of the global resurgence of electric cars, following the race to be the first and 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. “Revenge tells the story of that rare moment when the bottom line finally dovetails with the greater good” (Village Voice).
