TALES FROM THE NEIGHBOURHOOD: Drive for Free 2: The Revolution Continues

Fri, June 3 / 7 pm
Directed by Noah Erenberg & Bruce Little
2016, Canada, 54 min

Over the past several years, MTS Stories from Home has sparked the creation of hundreds of hours of new, intensely local TV content in Manitoba. This body of work, unique in vision and vast in scope, has supported local filmmakers as they tell stories that might not have been otherwise produced.

Introduced by Noah Erenberg and Bruce Little.

The latest from two Winnipeg filmmakers in their ongoing quest to drive for free. Their search for cheaper, cleaner alternative fuels began in 2010 when they released their first documentary in this series, Drive For Free – The Alternative Fuel Revolution. In Part One Erenberg discovered that burning waste vegetable oil was best for his long commute. In this sequel, Bruce Little uncovers a source of power as old as the automobile itself; a fuel that seems to provide the least expensive way to drive. Along the way, the filmmakers meet a vibrant and collaborative community of enthusiasts who are focused on this cutting edge technology and on the goal to drive for free.

*Nominated for a 2016 YFF Golden Sheaf – POV Documentary
