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.
Emily is 20 years old and attending Kenyon College in Ohio. Inspired by an environmental class in her freshman year, she became the leader of her Sustainability Club. She enforces her philosophy in sustainability and alternative fuel by taking public transportation, riding a bicycle, and seeking out flex fuel vehicles to drive.
John is 30 years old and works as an automotive engineer in Colorado. In his appearance in PUMP, John goes in-depth on "hacking" cars to be flex fuel compatible and shares how anyone can do it to their own car!
Freddie is an actor and model who grew up on a farm in Kenya, East Africa and now lives in Brooklyn, NY. While growing up in Africa, Freddie's family used alternative fuels such as ethanol for everything from powering their stoves to running their generator.
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.
Today oil is our only option of transportation fuel at the pump. Our exclusive use of it has drained our wallets, increased air pollution and sent our sons and daughters to war in faraway lands. PUMP shows us how through the use of a variety of replacement fuels, we will be able to fill up our cars - cheaper, cleaner and American made - and in the process, create more jobs for a stronger, healthier economy.
The film features notable experts such as John Hofmeister, former President of Shell Oil US; Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors; Peter Goldmark, former president of the Rockefeller Foundation; and other noteworthy figures who share their passionate views and knowledge. Right now we have the ability to change our country's future, but we never knew it. Aren't we tired of being taken for a ride? PUMP is the movie that could change that.
