Who Killed the Electric Car?

Film screening and discussion:  'Who Killed the Electric Car' at the lovely Lexi Cinema, Wednesday May 19th at 6.45 for 7pm start.
 
Film will be followed by speakers and informal discussion from 8.30-10pm in the Constitution Club next door - a chance to meet members of local group Transition Town Kensal to Kilburn.
 
Local cycling groups Cycletastic and Brent Cyclists and carclub Zipcar will talk about sustainable transport and Greenzones schemes will discuss recyling.
 
 
 
Chris Paine's film investigates the events leading to the quiet destruction of thousands of new, radically efficient electric vehicles. Through interviews and narrative, the film paints a picture of an industrial culture whose aversion to change and reliance on oil may be deeper then its ability to embrace ready solutions.  http://www.whokilledtheelectriccar.com/
 
Who Killed the Electric Car? and Chris Paine were nominated by the Writer's Guild for Best Documentary of 2006. The film also received nominations from The Broadcast Critics Awards and The Environmental Media Awards for Best Documentary of 2006. The film won the audience award at the Canberra International Film Festival and won a special jury prize at the Mountain Film Festival.
