Revenge of the Electric Car, with acclaimed director Chris Paine
Thursday, January 27, 2011 - 6:00pm to Thursday, January 27, 2011 - 8:00pm
PSU's Institute for Sustainable Solutions and School of Fine and Performing Arts and PGE are hosting acclaimed director and electric vehicle (EV) enthusiast Chris Paine for a public lecture on how this new generation of cars are America’s future: fast, furious, and cleaner than ever.

Best known for his 2006 documentary Who Killed the Electric Car, Paine has a new movie coming out called Revenge of the Electric Car. In it he shows how almost every major car maker is now jumping to produce new electric models, and competing to win the hearts and minds of the public around the world.  It’s not just the next generation of green cars that’s on the line.  It’s the future of the automobile itself.

This event is free and open to the public.

WHEN: Thursday, January 27, at 6:00 p.m. (doors open at 5:30 p.m.)
WHERE: PSU’s Lincoln Performance Hall, room 175 (corner of SW Broadway and SW Market St.)

A free screening of Who Killed the Electric Car will be shown before the lecture in Lincoln Hall room 115, 4:00-5:30 p.m.
