Pic probes power play

'Car' pic revs up for bow

WHAT: Monday’s screening of Sony Pictures Classics docu “Who Killed the Electric Car?”

WHERE: Sony screening room in midtown.

WHO: Pic’s writer-director Chris Paine, producer Dean Devlin, moderator Michael Moore and Sony Picture Classics toppers Michael Barker and Tom Bernard

MOORE MESSAGE: Prior to the screening, Moore mingled with guests and explained why he supported the film, which chronicles the life and death of the General Motors fleet of EV1 electric vehicles.

“I think that this is a really important film, especially in conjunction with the Al Gore film (“An Inconvenient Truth”),” he said. “These two films give information to the public that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to get,” he enthused.

“There were no television commercials telling you what an electric car was when it first came out, and now you just barely get them telling you what a hybrid is,” Paine said. “So I hope this film can give people the tools to individually think about what they are buying and how they want to shape the future.”
