“Revenge of the Electric Car” film


    From Sustainable Tucson and Tucson Electric Vehicle Assn. (TEVA):


    For Tucson’s 5th annual National Drive Electric Week (NDEW) event, TEVA is proud to present the film “Revenge of the Electric Car” at the Joel D. Valdez Main Library in the lower level meeting room on Saturday, September 12, 2015, at 3:00PM. The movie is free and open to the public.

    In the hour leading up to and following the movie’s 3:00PM screening, several electric cars owned by TEVA members will be parked on the Jacome Plaza in front of the library entrance, with the owners on hand to provide information on their vehicles and electric cars in general.

    There will also be a short talk just prior to the movie, with information regarding the purpose and scope of NDEW events, TEVA’s mission in the Tucson community, and a preview of the numerous events TEVA will be attending or hosting in the coming months.

    Following the end of the film (approximately 4:30PM), TEVA vehicle owners will return to the plaza for another hour to interact with those interested electric cars.

    The film “Revenge of the Electric Car” is the 2nd production from documentary filmmaker Chris Paine. A follow-up to the influential 2006 “Who Killed the Electric Car?” the movie’s backdrop is set against the precarious Great Recession financial period of 2007 to 2010, when several industry leaders were about to introduce the first production electric cars available for general sale to the public in over a century. Whereas the filmmaker’s freshman film ended in uncertainty for the electric car’s future, with a handful of vehicles being crushed in the desert, “Revenge of the Electric Car” caps off on a triumphant note, with the foreshadowing of what is now close to a million production electric vehicles being driven every day in countries all over the world.
