The world is addicted to oil. It’s time for an intervention.

FUEL is an insightful and entertaining portrait of America’s addiction to oil and an uplifting testament to new energy solutions. Director Josh Tickell takes us on a whirlwind journey to track the rise of the petrochemical industry, revealing a wealth of available solutions to repower North America, from vertical farms that occupy skyscrapers to algae facilities that turn wastewater into fuel. Interviews with environmentalists, policy makers and celebrities guide us through North Americas complicated, often ignominious energy past and illuminate a hopeful, achievable future, where decentralized, sustainable living is not only possible, it’s imperative.

Dynamic and persuasive. Its a must-see, and not just for environmentalists. SEATTLE TIMES

Sweeping and exhilarating, Tickells passionate film goes beyond great storytelling; it rings out like a bell that stirs consciousness and makes individual action suddenly seem consequential. SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL
