Happening: A Clean Energy Revolution

James Redford/2017/71 min/Energy

FILM DESCRIPTION: When the issue of renewable energy comes up, it’s common to think, “that’s a future thing. It’s like sci-fi.” Well, this film is here to tell you, the clean energy revolution is happening right now. Director James Redford, an award-winning filmmaker … and, yes, Hollywood legend Robert Redford’s son … takes us on his personal journey into the dawn of the clean energy era as it creates jobs, turns profits, and makes communities stronger and healthier. “Reaching well beyond a story of technology and innovation, Happening explores issues of human resilience, social justice, embracing the future, and finding hope for our survival,” says Redford.

After the screening, join us via Zoom live chat with a panel of local energy experts guided by facilitator Kyra Woods, Clean Energy Organizer for Sierra Club and Ready for 100 Chicago Collective:

--Charlene Andreas, Latin United Community Housing Association, Director of Affordable Housing
--Quinn Biever, Elevate Energy and Ready for 100 Chicago Collective, Policy Manager
--Akosua Goosby, Elevate Energy, Community Outreach Representative
