Eleven years in the making, FUEL is the in-depth personal journey of filmmaker and eco-evangelist Josh Tickell, who takes us on a hip, fast-paced road trip into America s dependence on foreign oil. Combining a history lesson of the US auto and petroleum industries and interviews with a wide range of policy makers, educators, and activists such as Woody Harrelson, Sheryl Crow, Neil Young and Willie Nelson. Animated by powerful graphics, FUEL looks into our future offering hope via a wide-range of renewable energy and bio-fuels. Winner of the Sundance Audience Award.
Fuel is a vital, superbly assembled documentary...doesn't dwell on muckraking, however; it s more focused on broadly inspiring viewers than preaching to the converted....Smartly animated interstitials, memorable archival material and a lively soundtrack round out the fast-paced proceedings. --Los Angeles Times
....FUEL addresses the issues of alternative energy and biofuels with its own kind of forward momentum....the films sentiments are clean and very, very green. Tickell knows how to grab an audience that s either indifferent or disinclined to partake of the debate over America s oil dependence and makes the substantial point that reliance on the Middle East and OPEC makes the country more vulnerable than it would be if it moved into alternative fuels. 'Oil is the lifeblood of our society,' he says, before mounting a good argument about why that doesn't have to be. --Variety
Sweeping and exhilarating, Tickell s 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

Very informative. I first discovered Josh Tickell in 1999, so it was very interesting to see his path along the way and where he is in 2012. I really enjoyed it.Published on December 15, 2012 by L R
