Film: Who Killed the Electric Car

Time: 7:00 PM-9:00 PM
Place: Keene Public Library, Auditorium, Keene, NH
Price: Free
Ages: Older 

This film surveys the development of electric-powered cars in the late 1990s, and looks at events that kept them from being made available in the consumer marketplace.  'Writer-director Chris Paine attempts to assess the actual viability of the project through interviews with political figures, the division’s sales staff, environmental activists, industry writers, and drivers, while also recounting the ultimately futile efforts of supporters to save the car and apportioning blame for its demise .... A salutary warning about backroom skullduggery in corporate America, this is recommended.' (Video Librarian, Nov. 2006).
