Fuel

Change your fuel, change your world.

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.

Biodiesel is a delicate subject in Europe, for that reason this truly excellent and inspiring film has not spread. Although the film is very differentiated, this film has to be discussed after its viewing.

Cinematically, “Fuel“ sets a new standard for environmental films.
