Happening: A Clean Energy Revolution, a film from Robert Redford’s Redford Centre is scheduled to air on HBO beginning December 11. This is the first television viewing of the film, which has been on the documentary festival circuit.
From the film’s website:
Filmmaker James Redford embarks on a colorful personal journey into the dawn of the clean energy era as it creates jobs, turns profits, and makes communities stronger and healthier across the US. Unlikely entrepreneurs in communities from Georgetown, TX to Buffalo, NY reveal pioneering clean energy solutions while James’ discovery of how clean energy works, and what it means at a personal level, becomes the audiences’ discovery too. Reaching well beyond a great story of technology and innovation, “Happening” explores issues of human resilience, social justice, embracing the future, and finding hope for our survival.
Characters in the film include actor Mark Ruffalo; Ray Maybus, Secretary of the U.S. Navy 2009-2017; clean energy start-up investor Matthew Nordan and Dave Ramm, Chairman and CEO, BrightSource Energy.
There are also opportunities to host events centred around the film as well as materials for educators.
