Josh Tickell’s movie, Fields of Fuel, which promotes biodiesel over petroleum based fuel, won the audience prize at Sundance 2008 for the Best Documentary. The cast list includes Barbara Boxer, Richard Branson, Sheryl Crow, Laurie David, Larry David, James Gennaro, Larry Hagman, Woody Harrelson, Jay Inslee, Jack Johnson, Bud McFarlane, Willie Nelson, Director Josh Tickell, Neil Young and Jim Woolsey.
