PUMP, the Film
Saturday, November 22  7:30 PM  
Visual Arts Center, Beam Classroom

Pump is a documentary film that chronicles the story of America's addiction to oil, from Standard Oil's illegal tactics to the monopoly that oil companies enjoy today. The film explains how we can end this monopoly--and win choices at the pump. Watch the trailer

This film explores the roots of America's dependence on oil and considers how that has affected the United States, showing ways that an open fuel market would benefit both the environment and the economy. Watch the film that critics are calling "entertaining" (Variety), "powerful" (Huffington Post), and "well-reasoned and compelling" (LA Times).

Afterward, Mark Rosenblatt from Freedom Fuel Foundation, the organization that produced Pump, will be available via skype for a question and answer session.
