Revenge of the Electric Car
A film by Chris Paine
Distributed by ro*co films international (rocofilms.com)
When electric cars first appeared on the market in the 1990s, mass production and commercialization was abruptly—and dubiously—shut down, a story told in Chris Paine's first documentary WHO KILLED THE ELECTRIC CAR?
Just a few short years later, the race is back on to develop an affordable, stylish electric car and win over a skeptical public. REVENGE OF THE ELECTRIC CAR goes behind the closed doors of Nissan, GM, the innovative California start-up Tesla Motors and an independent car converter names Greg “Gadget” Abbott to find the story of the global resurgence of electric cars. Without using a single drop of foreign oil, this new generation of automobile emerges as the future: fast, furious and cleaner than ever.
