Channel 4 will air Formula E documentary And We Go Green on UK television for the first time on Tuesday 2nd June at midnight with the film then available on demand through All 4 for one year.
The documentary on the rise of Formula E and its positive impact in combating global warming and air pollution was co-directed by Tiger King producer and Academy Award winner Fisher Stevens and Malcolm Venville (44 Inch Chest).
Leonardo Di Caprio both produced and appears in the film which premiered at 2019 Cannes Film Festival and reunited Di Caprio with Stevens after the pair previously worked together on climate change documentary ‘Before the Flood.’
And We Go Green chronicles how Formula E has become the world’s fastest growing motorsport and provides a behind-the-scenes look at the Championship’s fourth season with candid interviews and suspenseful race footage.
The film follows five drivers – champion Jean-Eric Vergne, Sam Bird, Lucas di Grassi, André Lotterer and ex-Formula E driver Nelson Piquet Jr – as they race for victory across 10 major cities to contest the 2017/18 season.
Formula E Founder and Chairman Alejandro Agag, who also appears in the film, 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.”
Advanced previews and interview opportunities are available on request.
