You might say husband-and-wife documentarians Joshua Tickell and Rebecca Harrell Tickell have found their niche, or at least an obsession. The pair has made three small movies about the hazards of America’s oil addiction, and before that Joshua made two others: “Fields of Fuel” and “Fuel.”
Right now, we have the ability to change our country’s future by ending our dependence on oil. PUMP is an eye-opening movie that shows how YOU can help end our oil addiction, but you never knew it. Co-Founder, Yossie Hollander will be hosting a Q&A session after the movie.
From Main Street.com: When Josh Tickell and his wife Rebecca Tickell bought a Prius in 2009, they took their commitment to energy efficiency one step further by installing a flex fuel kit, which is an external mini-computer that goes under the hood and allows the car to run on ethanol.
There is a new documentary coming to a theater near you: PUMP. The film tells the story of America’s addiction to oil. Stories told range from Standard Oil’s illegal tactics to the dominance of oil companies. The goal of the film is to explain why and how consumers can end Big Oil’s monopoly and “win choice at the pump”.
We are giving away a pair of tickets to see PUMP the movie at any showing on October 4. To win, comment on this post why you’d like to attend. Winner will be drawn and emailed Friday, October 3.
Pump:The Movie is a documentary from directors Joshua Tickell and Rebecca Harrell Tickell. The question that is asked by this film is, “can America truly end its dependence on oil?” Not just foreign oil, but oil in general.
Produced in conjunction with the nonprofit Fuel Freedom Foundation, “Pump” is less a movie than a Web page in motion. But the arguments have an appealing logic for those concerned about the environment.
There are better and worse ways to put together an issue-oriented documentary with an agenda; Joshua Tickell (following up his similarly-themed 2008 documentary Fuel) and Rebecca Tickell show one of the better ways.
