Event Details

Join CUE's Third Thursday Series this February

FUEL is an insightful portrait of America’s addiction to oil and an uplifting testament to the immediacy of new energy solutions. Director, Josh Tickell, a young activist, shuttles us on a whirlwind journey to track the rising domination of the petrochemical industry—from Rockefeller’s strategy to halt Ford’s first ethanol cars to Vice President Cheney's petrochemical company sponsored energy legislation — and reveals a gamut of available solutions to "repower America" —from vertical farms that occupy skyscrapers to algae facilities that turn wastewater into fuel. Tickell and a surprising array of environmentalists, policy makers, and entertainment notables take us through America’s complicated, often ignominious energy past and illuminate a hopeful, achievable future, where decentralized, sustainable living is not only possible, it’s imperative.

POST-SCREENING DISCUSSION with Brent Baker, CEO of Tri State Biodiesel


(No sitter? No problem! Bring your little ones along for a screening of Wall-E, the 2008 animated hit where a robot inadvertently stumbles upon the key to the planet's future.)
