FUEL Screening At Boulder Theater Postponed Until 4/14
Boulder Weekly Film Series & Center for ReSource Conservation present "FUEL" Thursday, April 4
Doors: 7:30pm, Show: 8:00pm
FUEL is an insightful portrait of America's addiction to oil and an uplifting testament to the immediacy of new energy solutions. Director, Josh Tickell, a young activist, shuttles us on a whirlwind journey to track the rising domination of the petrochemical industry - from Rockefeller's strategy to halt Ford's first ethanol cars to Vice President Cheney's petrochemical company sponsored energy legislation - and reveals a gamut of available solutions to "repower America".
Offering new insights on potential ways to offset America's energy addiction, from vertical farms that occupy skyscrapers to algae facilities that turn wastewater into fuel, the film's personal touch is sure to get its audience motivated. Tickell and a surprising array of environmentalists, policy makers, and entertainment notables take us through America's complicated, often ignominious energy past and illuminate a hopeful, achievable future, where decentralized, sustainable living is not only possible, it's imperative.
"Fuel is a vital, superbly assembled documentary...doesn't dwell on muckraking, however; it's more focused on broadly inspiring viewers than preaching to the converted....Smartly animated interstitials, memorable archival material and a lively soundtrack round out the fast-paced proceedings." - Los Angeles Times Review
