>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  Rather than moving into  the 21st century, many utilities are fighting to protect outdated  business models.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
