New documentary on ABB FIA Formula E Championship shows how sport can have a meaningful social impact
 
 



A new Formula E documentary titled ‘And We Go Green’ will premiere at Cannes Film Festival next week, taking viewers behind the scenes of the electric street racing series and highlighting the purpose of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship as a proving ground for electric technologies in a bid to combat climate change and air pollution.
 


Directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Fisher Stevens and Malcolm Venville, the highly-cinematic documentary uses intimate character-driven storylines and unseen race footage from Jean-Eric Vergne’s championship-winning season.
 


Put together in collaboration with Appian Way, Bloomfish Productions and RadicalMedia - ‘And We Go Green’ will screen at 18:45 on Thursday, May 23 at the Salle 60eme.
 


The following filmmakers and subjects from the documentary will be in attendance at Cannes - Fisher Stevens (Co-director), Malcolm Venville (Co-director), Leonardo DiCaprio (Producer and subject), Alejandro Agag (Executive Producer and Founder & CEO of Formula E), Jean-Eric Vergne (DS TECHEETAH driver), Lucas di Grassi (Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler driver), Sam Bird (Envision Virgin Racing driver), Andre Lotterer (DS TECHEETAH driver), Nelson Piquet Jr. (former Panasonic Jaguar Racing driver), Rick Yorn (Executive Producer), Jon Kamen (Executive Producer), Christopher St. John (Producer), Jennifer Davisson (Producer), Zara Duffy (Producer) and Gabriel Rhodes (Editor).

Alejandro Agag, Founder & CEO of Formula E, said: “The documentary encapsulates the true mission and purpose of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, to show how competition drives technological development and how the excitement of sport can have a meaningful social impact and alter perceptions of electric vehicles.



This notion is how the title ‘And We Go Green’ came about. Not only does it signal the start of our races, but it also indicates an urgent need to put the brakes on devastating and irreparable damage already caused by fossil fuels. I’m proud to have worked with such great talent and a production team who share the same common values around sustainability and making a positive impact in the fight against climate change.”
 


Fisher Stevens and Malcolm Venville, said: “Originally, we thought we were making a film about the environment. We realised the best way to get the world to pay attention to climate change is to make a film about people - in this case race car drivers and an upstart with a vision to disrupt racing series forever. The life of sportsmen, the ups and downs, the excitement of racing and the innovative, life-affirming electric technology coupled with racing through the heart of the biggest cities in the world. This was an incredible, inspiring and thrilling film to make.”
 


Rick Yorn (LBI Entertainment) is handling worldwide sales for the title. The documentary is written by Mark Monroe and produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, Fisher Stevens, Christopher St. John, Jennifer Davisson and Zara Duffy. Executive Producers include Jon Kamen, Dave Sirulnick, Justin Wilkes, Alejandro Agag and Rick Yorn.
