From electric cars to bicyclists on the front lines for shared roads, Chris shares his expertise as a filmmaker and activist to tell the story of technology and generational change in the era of climate meltdown. Drawing on his films about the attempted sabotage of electric cars, startup comebacks like Tesla Motors (chronicled in “Revenge of the Electric Car”), and most recently individual activism in "Bikes vs Cars" Chris connects true progress to passionate leadership even in the face of systemic failures.  Presentation will include film clips, at least one humorous anecdote, and no more then five cat photos.

 

Chris Paine is known worldwide for his films, including the widely viewed Who Killed the Electric Car? (2006) and Revenge of the Electric Car (2011).
