Revenge of the Electric Car will have its world premiere in New York City at the Tribeca Film Festival on Earth Day April 22nd.

Revenge of the Electric Car is a new feature documentary film about electric cars from Chris Paine director of the 2006 success Who Killed the Electric Car?   The new film tells the story of how the plug-in car as come back from the dead in just a few short years going behind the scenes for three years with three carmakers and one converter as they race to bring their electric cars to market.  With gas prices rising around the world again in monetary and environmental terms many drivers want alternatives.

The filmmakers are especially excited to be premiering at such a prestigious festival. “For many people this is year one of the electric car ” says Paine. For us to be playing at Tribeca in New York on Earth Day is a great sign that the electric car revolution is are more then just a great story it's our future with less imported oil.

 After the Earth Day premiere the film will have a handful of other screenings at the Tribeca Film Festival. Tickets to those screenings will go on sale at the festival’s website within the next few weeks.
