FUEL is a comprehensive and entertaining look at energy in America. Rousing and reactionary, FUEL is also the in-depth, personal journey of energy pioneer Josh Tickell as he struggles to integrate the lessons learned while growing up in the oil state of Louisiana and examines wide-ranging energy solutions, the faltering US auto and petroleum industries, and the American mindset toward alternative energy. Tickell uses his quest to popularize biodiesel — a diesel alternative made from plant oils — as a way to convey the far reaching message of the challenges and potential difference that one individual can make. FUEL won the Sundance Film Festival Audience Award for Best Documentary, was selected as a New York Times Critics' Pick and was Shortlisted for an Academy Award.
The Big Fix explores possible connections between corporate and political malfeasance and the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Josh Tickell and his wife and filmmaking partner Rebecca Harrell Tickell expose one of the largest environmental coverups in US history. On one level The Big Fix is a comprehensive depiction of the oil industry. On another level it is a personal, heartbreaking and exhilarating journey with Josh and Rebecca on a quest that compels them to go undercover and risk their lives. A rough cut of The Big Fix was the only documentary selected by the 2011 Cannes Film Festival for an Official Selection Premiere. The New Orleans Times Picayune says it's "EXPLOSIVE," Gambit calls it "MASSIVELY IMPORTANT" and NOLA.com writes it's "FULL ON, NO-HOLDS BARRED INESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM."
