South Maui Sustainability Invites You: Special Maui Screening Of The Award-Winning Film “Fuel” Friday February 27th Doors open 6:30 p.m., Film begins at 7 p.m. Kihei Charter School* Tickets: $5 — Students free South Maui Sustainability Invites you to a screening of Fuel. In 2008 Fuel won numerous film festival awards including Sundance Film Festival Best Documentary Audience Award, Santa Cruz Film Festival Producer’s Award and Sedona Film Festival Best Documentary Jury Award. Fuel is currently being shown in only a few select theaters around the country. South Maui Sustainability is very pleased to be able to share this film. Tickets are $5 and will be available at the door. Students will be admitted free. Fuel is an insightful portrait of America‘s addiction to oil and an uplifting testament to the immediacy of new energy solutions. Director, Josh Tickell, a young activist, shuttles us on a whirlwind journey to track the rising domination of the petrochemical industry—from Rockefeller’s strategy to halt Ford’s first ethanol cars to Vice President Cheney’s petrochemical company sponsored energy legislation—and reveals a gamut of available solutions to “repower America”—from vertical farms that occupy skyscrapers to algae facilities that turn wastewater into fuel. Tickell and a surprising array of environmentalists, policy makers, and entertainment notables take us through America’s complicated, often ignominious energy past and illuminate a hopeful, achievable future, where decentralized, sustainable living is not only possible, it’s imperative. Appearing in the film are Richard Branson, Sheryl Crow, Woody Harrelson, Julia Roberts, Neil Young, Robert Kennedy Jr, and Willie Nelson among others.
