Environmental Protection Society in conjunction with the Essex Sustainability Institute (ESI) Film Screening: Who Killed the Electric Car? It begins with a solemn funeral…for a car. By the end of Chris Paine’s lively and informative documentary, the idea doesn’t seem quite so strange. As narrator Martin Sheen notes, “They were quiet and fast, produced no exhaust and ran without gasoline.” Paine proceeds to show how this unique vehicle came into being and why General Motors ended up reclaiming its once-prized creation less than a decade later (2006, 93 min).
LTB 6. Tuesday 6.30pm with follow up discussions in Top Bar.
