Josh Tickell’s stirring, radical and multi-award winning FUEL may be known by some as the “little energy documentary,” but in truth, it’s a powerful portrait of America’s overwhelming addiction to, and reliance on, oil. Having been born and raised in one of the USA’s most oil producing regions, he saw first-hand how the industry controls, deceives and damages the country, its people and the environment. After one too many people he knew became sick, Tickell knew he just couldn’t idly standby any longer. He decided to make a film, focusing both on the knowledge and insight he discovered, but also giving hope that solutions are within reach. A ‘regular guy’ who felt he could make a difference, he spent 11 years making his movie,showing himself – and others – that an individual can indeed make a difference.
