Spring Sustainability Series: CATCHING THE SUN

Watch Trailer Director: Shalini Kantayya

Through the stories of workers and entrepreneurs in the U.S. and China, the film captures the global race to lead the clean energy future. Over the course of a solar jobs training program, the film 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, the film 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?

“A must-see film. An eye-opening look at workers and entrepreneurs on the forefront of the clean energy movement that will transform, and enliven the way you see the future. What is clear is the wonderful opportunity the transition to clean energy represents.”  – Actor, Mark Ruffalo
