On March 26, 2012, Nine Community Cinema in St. Louis Missouri held a public screening of “Revenge of the Electric Car,” at the Missouri History Museum. Today, the electric car is back with a vengeance. Director Chris Paine takes his crew behind the closed doors of Nissan, General Motors, the Silicon Valley start-up Tesla Motors, and an independent car converter named Greg “Gadget” Abbott to find the story of the global resurgence of electric cars. With the goal of weaning the country off of foreign oil, this new generation of automobiles promises to be America’s future: fast, furious, and cleaner than ever.
Nine Academy Community Producer, Ed Reggi recorded these community reactions after the screening.
