by tarbidian

Please join us for the Okanagan Premiere: ‘Revenge of Electric Car’ on Friday March 23, 7-9pm, at the main theatre in the Student Services Building in Okanagan College, KLO Campus, Kelowna.

The Okanagan premiere of “Revenge of the Electric Car”  is presented by the Okanagan Chapter of the BC Sustainable Energy Association, in association with Leo’s Videos, the Fresh Outlook Foundation, and Okanagan Greens. To be followed by a discussion with local electric car experts. Entrance by donation, or FREE for students and staff of Okanagan College. Plus raffle prizes by Leo’s Videos.

By 2006, thousands of new electric cars were purposely destroyed by the same car companies that built them. Today, the electric car is back… with a vengeance.

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 chronicle 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.

Revenge of the Electric Car is narrated by Tim Robbins. The primary cast includes CEO and President of Renault and Nissan Carlos Ghosn, CEO of Tesla Motors Elon Musk, Former Vice Chairman of GM Bob Lutz and EV do-it-yourselfer Greg “Gadget” Abbott.
