2014. USA. Directed by Joshua Tickell, Rebecca Harrell Tickell. Pump is an inspiring, eye-opening documentary that tells the story of America’s addiction to oil and explains clearly and simply how we can end it—and finally win choice at the pump. Today oil is our only option for transportation fuel at the pump, and its exclusive use has drained our wallets, increased air pollution, and sent our sons and daughters to war in faraway lands. Pump shows how, through the use of a variety of replacement fuels, we will be able to fill up our (cheaper, cleaner, American-made) cars and, 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 U.S.; 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.
