Event Description
Idle Threat

Country: USA
Director: George Pakenham

Can one man’s quest to make the world a better place for everyone to live in, really work? A self-described vigilante, George Pakenham, walks the streets of New York to stop what many see as a victimless crime: idling. What they don’t realize is how they are contributing to asthma air pollution and the oil crisis. In order to raise awareness, Pakenham goes door-to-door – that is, car door-to-car door – explaining to unknowing drivers that they are breaking the law when they idle for more than three minutes. He just wants the law to be enforced. (2012; 60 min)

The director is scheduled to attend.

With Short: Gas Rush Stories: Renewable Energy Experts by Kirsi Jansa.

Co-presented with the Breathe Project.
