ABOUT THE FILM


FREEDOM is a one hour documentary that takes a hard look at America’s perilous and unsustainable addiction to foreign oil.  It explores the role that Ethanol plays as a homegrown alternative that will boost the domestic economy, create jobs and reduce our need to rely on dangerous and unstable parts of the world for our fuel.  


There is widespread agreement that America needs to wean itself off oil yet Ethanol has become a lightning rod of controversy.  An anti Ethanol coalition made up of both big oil and radical environmentalists stokes the fires of that controversy every day. Debate rages on the pros and cons of Ethanol but what is the truth?  


Filmmakers Josh and Rebecca Tickell set out on a journey to take a fresh look at Ethanol and try to separate the myth from the hyperbole. This “green evangelist” couple is uniquely suited to lead us on this inquiry. Their 2008 Sundance-winning film FUEL explored in depth the world of biofuels here in America and around the world. In their new film, FREEDOM, they again take the pulse of the biofuel industry in 2011 and find that the time is right to correct some misperceptions about America’s original alternative fuel.
