We are pleased to be working on REVENGE OF THE ELECTRIC CAR, Chris Paine’s follow-up to his acclaimed documentary “Who Killed the Electric Car?”
REVENGE OF THE ELECTRIC CAR opens on October 21st at the Nuart in LA and at the Sunshine in NYC.
In 2006, as many as 5,000 modern electric cars were destroyed by the major car companies that built them.
Today, less than 5 years later, the electric car is back… with a vengeance. REVENGE of the ELECTRIC CAR director Chris Paine takes his film crew behind the closed doors of Nissan, GM, the Silicon Valley start-up Tesla Motors as well as to the Los Angeles garage of an independent car converter named 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 automobiles is America’s future: fast, furious, and cleaner than ever.
With almost every major car maker now vying to produce new electric models, REVENGE of the ELECTRIC CAR follows the race to be the first, the best, and to win the hearts and minds of the American public. Running time: 90 minutes
