From producer Leonardo DiCaprio, strap in for the thrilling high-speed rush that is AND WE GO GREEN. Covering the genesis of Formula E circuit racing—inspired by Formula One, but instead using eco-friendly electric cars—the film zooms through a complete ten-city season in this increasingly popular international sport. And it’s easy to see why fans follow the league, as it’s shown to be an intensely competitive, technologically innovative, and highly glamorous sport that fuses a passion for race car driving with a bold nod toward environmentalism and the future. Adding to the excitement, this switch over to electric cars has revealed a tricky set of unforeseen challenges and particulars for the drivers and manufacturers in what is a new frontier for race car driving. Fusing behind-the-scenes dramas with breakneck racing footage, this dynamic sports documentary drops the viewer into a narrative that quickly becomes too involving to look away. Slick and precise, this finely crafted technical marvel is an exhilarating introduction to the sterling world of Formula E. — R.J.T.
