Catching the Sun

New documentary that explores the global economic race to lead the clean energy future.
As the global race to lead the clean energy future kicks into full gear, an unlikely ensemble of characters in the US and China make radical moves: activist Van Jones transitions from leading a solar-installation training program in Richmond, CA into the spotlight of public policy as his trainees fight for employment in a market that hasn’t caught up to their skillset; Wally Jiang, a charismatic Chinese entrepreneur, dreams of building a “solar city” in the Texan desert. Can the US build a clean energy economy to help solve both inequality and climate change?
 
A Q&A discussion about solar in Maine, with ReVision Energy and the Natural Resources Council of Maine, will follow the film.
