FUEL: The Movie
At a time of heightened sensitivity, the ongoing discussion over our nation’s fragile status have moved past the walls of the White House and into the living rooms of homes across the country. Beginning November 14th, the 2008 Sundance award-winning documentary, FUEL, will address one issue apart of that discussion over the US economy by magnifying the repercussions of a matter that needs to be resolved before it’s too late.
Directed by Josh Tickell, FUEL takes you on an eye-opening journey examining our country’s addiction to oil and the damage it poses to not only this nation’s vitality but also to the livelihood of our world community. While exposing crucial details of the oil industry that have been concealed from the general public, Tickell calls attention to green energy as a solution that can reverse such threatening conditions. Sir Richard Branson, Sheryl Crow, Julia Roberts, Woody Harrelson and other notable celebrities make special appearances to voice their stance on this extremely important issue.
Record high oil prices, global warming, and an insatiable demand for energy: these issues will be the catalyst for heated debates and positive change for many years to come. 2008 Sundance award-winning film FUEL exposes shocking connections between the auto industry, the oil industry and the government, while exploring alternative energies such as solar, wind, electricity and non-food-based biofuels.
Josh Tickell and his Veggie Van take us on the road as we discover the pros and cons of biofuels, how America’s addiction to oil is destroying the U.S. economy and how green energy can save us, but only if we act now.
