'And We Go Green': Release date, plot, cast and all you need to know about the Leonardo DiCaprio-produced docu on Hulu
Hulu has officially set a June premiere date for the feature-length documentary 'And We Go Green,' that first debuted in 2019 at the Cannes and Toronto Film Festivals. The film is 88 minutes long and focuses on the advancements in technology that adhere to eco-friendly protocols and drivers of the Formula E. Here is what we know of the upcoming release.
The documentary will debut on June 4, 2020.
The documentary is a behind-the-scenes look at the ABB FIA Formula E Championship and how since 2014, it has become the world's fastest-growing motorsport. Viewers are taken on the ride as the documentary follows the drivers such as champion Jean-Eric Vergne and former Formula E driver Nelson Piquet Jr. on the international Formula E circuit as the professionals cross 10 cities in the 2017/18 season.
“Originally, we thought we were making a film about the environment. We realized 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 hearts of the biggest cities in the world. This was an incredible, inspiring, and thrilling film to make," said directors Fisher Stevens and Malcolm Venville to Deadline.
“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," said Formula E founder and chairman Alejandro Agag.
The documentary features interesting interviews by Alejandro Agag, Sam Bird, Lucas di Grassi, Leonardo DiCaprio, André Lotterer, Nelson Piquet Jr., Jean-Éric Vergne, and many more.
Fisher Stevens, known for 'Before The Flood' and Malcolm Venville directed the movie with Leonardo DiCaprio serving as producer along with Appian Way Productions, RadicalMedia and Bloomfish Productions. Additionally, Mark Monroe served as a writer, and Christopher St. John, Jennifer Davisson, and Zara Duffy also produced with Jon Kamen, Dave Sirulnick, Justin Wilkes, Alejandro Agag and Rick Yorn serving as executive producers.
