The oil debate is something that has raged on in the United States for years. With politicians constantly discussing our dependence on foreign oil, writer Johnny O’Hara and directors Joshua Tickell and Rebecca Harrell Tickell set out to make a film about Americans and their relationship with the oil industry.
I’m looking forward to checking out Pump because believe it or not I think the subject of clean energy and renewable energy is important especially with our gas guzzling cars! Here’s some character posters along with the trailer for the documentary.
American petroleum use accounts for about one-quarter of global consumption, depending upon whose numbers you’re refining. Kicking our oil addiction is an old mantra that is preached daily from the sidelines by an army of expert energy analysts and security insiders. A slick, kinetic new Hollywood movie, PUMP, is breaking out of the wooden oil documentary mold to help power a concerted national effort to get off of oil.
On behalf of Submarine Deluxe, we’re excited to share NEW CONTENT for the upcoming documentary on America’s oil addiction, PUMP, opening in NY & LA this Friday, Sept. 19th!
PUMP is an inspiring, eye-opening documentary that tells the story of America’s addiction to oil, from its corporate conspiracy beginnings to its current monopoly today, and explains clearly and simply how we can end it – and finally win choice at the pump.

n Fuel, his 2008 documentary, Joshua Tickell took a first-person stance for renewable energy. Six years later, co-directing with his wife Rebecca Harrell Tickell, he removes himself from the onscreen equation for Pump. Gathering expert testimony and a bright mix of archival material, their film champions gas station alternatives that go way beyond premium and regular.
If Monday was a prelude of what’s to come, PUMP is going to find an enthusiastic audience when it hits theaters Friday.
