A documentary film about biofuels is making its debut at the Sundance Film Festival. Director Josh Tickell talks about the film and his belief that biodiesel is the key to U.S. energy independence from foreign oil. Tickell is also known for his roving "Veggie Van," a biodiesel-powered Winnebago that traveled the country fueled by waste oil from french fry production.
