>From award-winning director and eco-activist Shalini Kantayya comes a feature length documentary that explores the global race to a clean energy future. "Solar power is a growing American success story. Yet just as solar is about to reach a tipping point, some utilities and other special interests are throwing obstacles in the way. Rather than moving into the 21st century, many utilities are fighting to protect outdated business models. Across the country, mayors, governors and others should set ambitious clean energy goals and commitments, offer new incentives, and promote new community solar programs. To make that happen, citizens need to voice their support for clean energy and demand clean energy access. Together, we can leave a cleaner, healthier world for future generations. The time for action is now." Last week's New York City screening garnered a Critics' Pick; see the review here: NY Times Critics' Pick: 'Catching the Sun' Profiles Solar Energy Entrepreneurs and Activists For any questions in the meantime, please contact Mike Higgins by e-mail: higginsm at mit.edu
