"FREEDOM" — fuel documentary premieres

August 17, 2011 |

In California, Josh and Rebecca Tickell – who brought America the VeggieVan and Sundance award winning documentary FUEL – have recently released their new film FREEDOM that looks at how biofuels and hybrids can transform transportation to help get America off its addiction to oil. To promote the film, they are traveling the US (and a few Canadian cities) during the next 3.5 months to get the word out about renewable fuels. People can also arrange for screenings of the film in their towns.

Scott Miller reviewed the film in his blog:

“Most of the new film “Freedom” is a series of interviews with farmers and biofuels innovators, economic and energy security experts, engaged government policymakers, and the occasional false prophets of inertia (Searchinger and Pimental).

“It treats its audience to an unblemished look at where we are and why public support now is so important to the well-being of future generations…ending the addiction will take time, but during the Q&A session after the screening it was clear that a dread, helpless feeling was being lifted from the audience. There are alternatives and action we can take today to secure a sustainable future for our children. We shouldn’t elect policymakers that limit our consumer votes at the pump.”
