REEL STORIES: ‘WHO KILLED THE ELECTRIC CAR'
7 p.m., Winthrop Rockefeller Institute, Petit Jean Mountain. $10.
The Rockefeller Institute's
film series returns with a recent documentary that examines the origins and demise of the GM EV1, the first modern electric car. Beyond tracking the EV1, filmmaker Chris Payne also delves into consumers' aversion to the car, the auto industry's reluctance to adapt and the oil industry's power in the equation. After the film, representatives from Electric Transportation of Arkansas will be on hand to discuss electric and solar vehicles today. ETA will have vehicles on display, too. Space is limited, so advance registration, via uawri.org or 501-727-5435, is recommended.
