“Catching the Sun” screening with Sierra Club
May 5, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal Campaign is hosting a special free screening of Catching the Sun to build the buzz for Solarize Woodinville and Solarize Kirkland.
Synopsis: Through the stories of workers and entrepreneurs in the U.S. and China, Catching the Sun captures the race to lead the clean energy future. Over the course of a solar jobs training program, Catching the Sun follows the hope and heartbreak of unemployed American workers seeking jobs in the solar industry. With countries like China investing in innovative technologies and capitalizing on this trillion-dollar opportunity, Catching the Sun tells the story of the global energy transition from the perspective of workers and entrepreneurs building solutions to income inequality and climate change with their own hands. Their successes and failures speak to one of the biggest questions of our time: will the U.S. actually be able to build a clean energy economy? Set against the struggle to build a ‘green economy’, Catching the Sun will engage new audiences in solutions to climate change and income inequality.
Join us after the film for a conversation with the Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal Campaign and local community leaders about the solar revolution happening on the Eastside and throughout WA state!
