A free screening of HAPPENING: A CLEAN ENERGY REVOLUTION directed by James Redford. Jon Bowermaster’s short film GROWING WITH THE GRAIN will precede the film.

Before the film, there will be a Solar Energy Workshop Lead by Festival Engineer Austin Krause. Learn the basics of solar energy, how Oscillation Transia runs on solar, and how you can implement solar into your life today!

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.

James Redford, co-founder of the Redford Center, writes, produces and directs for Film and Television. Prior to completing HAPPENING: A CLEAN ENREGY REVOLUTION for HBO, James’s other HBO films include TOXIC HOT SEAT, THE BIG PICTURE: RETHINKING DYSLEXIA, MANN V. FORD and THE KINDNESS OF STRANGERS. While completing HAPPENING, James has been traveling the world as an American Film Showcase ambassador with his two award-winning documentary films: RESILIENCE: THE BIOLOGY OF STRESS AND THE SCIENCE OF HOPE as well as PAPER TIGERS.
