In 2006 Chris Paine directed the award winning documentary ‘Who Killed the Electric Car?’ It explored why electric car production had seemingly ground to a halt. Six years on, his new documentary ‘Revenge of the Electric Car’ tells a very different story. It follows four car manufacturers, big and small, as they strive to build the next generation of electric cars.

Will they win over a sceptical public? Can the cars be faster and cleaner than ever before? Will they turn a profit?

Join us from 18:00 in the Dana Café for an 18:45 screening of Revenge of the Electric Car. Following the screening, there will be a discussion with the film’s director and an expert electric bar battery engineer, who was involved in the in the record-breaking Racing Green Endurance team that drove an electric racing car along the Pan-American highway from Alaska down to Argentina.
