Filmmaker Jamie 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 Jamie's 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.
I learned a lot about how clean, renewable energy actually works and why it is becoming so inexpensive. Redford may have known the answers to the questions he was asking, but those are the questions I would have asked and he got the answers for me. I also agree with one of the other reviewers, that the film or a version of it, should be made available to kids for educational purposes. IT"S HAPPENING. Every country in the world is on board, except US, and it's going to be these kid's world.
