As BP continues to be lambasted by media, the American government and consumers across the country, the Sundance-award winning film, FUEL, is coming to DVD. This new director’s cut comes with bonus features that offer sound strategies to prevent future oil catastrophes as well as tips on how to reduce energy consumption. The DVD will be released on June 22nd by Cinema Libre Studio in eco-friendly packaging and will sell for $24.95. In addition, the film offers tips on how to “green” your life while saving money in the process.
The film is a powerful portrait of America’s overwhelming addiction to, and reliance on, oil and its message is gaining renewed attention as the world is transfixed by the oil spill in the Gulf and BP’s inability to stop the leak. The film took 11 years to make but demonstrates the power of one individual’s ability to help make change.
FUEL has been embraced by consumers around the world and has been accepted to over 30 film festivals as well as shown in theaters in more than 35 cities. Josh Tickell, the films director and star, has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Good Morning America in addition to features in more than 150 major media outlets. Tickell was also selected as a UN Goodwill Ambassador during the 2nd Annual IREO Renewable Energy Awards Gala last year.
Another interesting DVD bonus is a free downloadable PDF copy of Tickell’s book, “From the Fryer to the Fuel Tank.” In this book, you can learn how to make biodiesel for under $1.00. For more information about the film and to purchase your DVD, visit www.thefuelfilm.
