/'Switch', the movie - Director Harry Lynch in person/

Welcome to a new season of BASEA Forums! To begin, we will focus on a 
film, 'Switch', currently on its premiere national tour. Director Harry 
Lynch will show solar-specific clips from the film, respond to our 
questions, and discuss the educational Switch Energy Project 
We are offering a 50% discount to the BASEA-hosted screening of the film 
at the AMC Loews Boston Common on Wed., September 12th, the night before 
our Forum, so you can see the entire film and be prepared to discuss it 
(details below).

'An Inconvenient Truth' (2006) was a box office success and won 2 
Academy Awards, while raising public awareness of climate change. 
'Switch' (2012), a feature-length documentary, has a similarly ambitious 
agenda. 'Switch' attempts to make "energy fascinating and engaging to 
encourage a balanced national understanding of our energy future" and to 
"show how it all fits together to form our energy transition, and 
exactly how and when that could happen".

The film follows Dr. Richard Tinker, surveying 26 rarely seen 
world-leading energy sites in 11 countries and interviewing 53 
international energy experts. From government, industry and academia, 
Dr. Tinker gets answers and synthesizes a vision of how all the pieces, 
though some must necessarily change, might fit together. What do you 
think of this vision? What questions are you left with? Come to the 
BASEA Forum and be heard!
