It’s EV night at the Drive-in! Basilica Hudson presents the 4th installment of our Non-Fiction Screening Series with 2040 (92 minutes). Come early for an EV Car show, hosted by SunCommon. 6:30PM for the EV show & live music, ~8:15 for the film.

Motivated by his 4 year old daughter, 2040 follows director Damon Gameau who embarks on a global journey to meet the innovators and change makers pioneering the best solutions already available to us today to improve the health of our planet. SunCommon and Basilica Hudson have partnered on this event to showcase examples of climate solutions that are available to us now. Solar power, electric vehicles and the stories that inspire action! 

Join local electric vehicle drivers and enthusiasts who will have their cars on display for you to have a look at, and learn all the great reasons to switch to electric driving. One of the more important reasons why we’re seeing this transition to EV’s is because cars and trucks are the largest culprits for fossil fuel emissions that are poisoning our planet. So while driving an EV is entirely more fun, it’s also important for the health of communities and planet Earth. Will we see you there?

Come early to grab a bite to eat and enjoy the outdoor bar at the Greenville Drive-In. Delicious food, unique cocktails and a free screening all with a stunning view of the Catskill Mountains.

This event is free, with a suggested donation of $15 at the box office or made online to help sustain Basilica Hudson and support filmmakers.

More about 2040: Drawing on the best minds from around the world to focus on climate, economics, technology, civil society, agriculture and sustainability, 2040 maps out a pathway for change that can lead us to a more ecologically sustainable and equitable future.
​​
​​Inspired by these discoveries and guided by the many children he consults with along the way, Damon interweaves dramatic sequences and high-end visual effects to conjure a positive portrait of what ‘could be’ instead of the current dystopian future we are so often presented.

ABOUT THE BASILICA NON-FICTION SCREENING SERIES

This screening is part of Basilica Hudson’s Basilica Non-Fiction Screening Series, which explores the documentary genre through screenings and dialogue with visiting directors. Despite the fact that our screening room has temporarily closed due to COVID-19 restrictions, we remain committed to bringing independent film to the Hudson Valley. Basilica Hudson is thrilled to partner with the Greenville Drive-In to move the Basilica Non-Fiction Screening Series OUTDOORS for 2021.

Now in its 10th year, Basilica’s film program has displayed a long-standing commitment to bringing independent and innovative voices in film to the Hudson waterfront, through new and repertory film and video art, often with filmmakers and special guests in conversation.

This free screening is made possible by Leigh and Dwight of the Greenville Drive-in. Basilica Hudson’s Film and Media program is generously supported, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
