Chris Paine — well known director of Who Killed The Electric Car? — has launched a blog site for his next film Revenge of the Electric Car.
There’s not much content yet, but the FAQ is revealing. For instance, Paine is empathetic that this film not be labeled as a “follow up” or “sequel” saying that it will be a very different film “in tone, approach and content” to the previous one. He also chimes in with what the film will cover with this little blurb:
“Revenge of the Electric Car” tells the story of the EV renaissance, circa 2008–2010. From new cars to conversions to plug-in hybrids, we’ll follow the many strands of what is — literally — an electrifying story.
Can EVs finally challenge the 100-year rule of gasoline engines, petrodollars and entrenched interests? Plug-in vehicles still face huge obstacles: there are technical hurdles, public nervousness, industry fears. But this time around the world is clamoring for a revolutionary new age in transportation. Will the EV win? That’s what we’re going to find out…
Paine is also leaving the door open to interns — so if you’d like to be a part of a rockin’ new documentary, check out the site here!
