This new movie is apparently so dangerous that it can only be seen if you are in just the right place at the right time. It may be the Dick Cheney of environmental films, primarily hiding in an undisclosed location. All mildly-to-moderately funny jokes aside, you really have to work to see “Who Killed the Electric Car?”. If you live in Wisconsin, you only get one chance, so pack up and start driving to Milwaukee.
The film opens on different dates all across the country, and of course the information on the website may not be complete, but it’s certainly a limited release.
It’s the story of the EV-1 electric car, and it’s short life before being crushed by a whole gaggle of evil-doers… but I’m not biased. I haven’t seen the film yet (it’s not open in my area) but reviews seem mostly positive. With luck I’ll be able to report back in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned… and in the meantime, check out the film’s website:
