The Flynn is pleased to be the host site of Community Cinema. Community Cinema is a community outreach offshoot of the PBS Series Independent Lens, which broadcasts different documentary films each month. The screenings held here will be 60-minute ‘preview’ versions of these films, followed by a community forum or panel discussion.
ABOUT THIS FILM: In 2006, thousands of new electric cars were purposely destroyed by the same car companies that built them. Today, less than 5 years later, the electric car is back… with a vengeance. In Revenge of the Electric Car, director Chris Paine takes his film crew behind the closed doors of Nissan, GM, and the Silicon Valley start-up Tesla Motors to chronicle the story of the global resurgence of electric cars. Without using a single drop of foreign oil, this new generation of car is America’s future: fast, furious, and cleaner than ever. With almost every major car maker now jumping to produce new electric models, Revenge follows the race to be the first, the best, and to win the hearts and minds of the public around the world. It’s not just the next generation of green cars that’s on the line. It’s the future of the automobile itself. Narrated by Tim Robbins.
This project is a partnership of the Flynn Center, Vermont Public Television, and the OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute) at the University of Vermont.
