Feature Film Synopsis – REVENGE OF THE ELECTRIC CAR
In 2006, thousands of new electric cars were purposely destroyed by the same car companies that built them. Today, less than 5 years later, 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.
Followed by the presentation - “Team Trev: Racing a little green electric car around the world”
- Andrew Dickson and Dr Peter Pudney from the University of South Australia
