Please join us for a night at the Pivotonian!
Catching the Sun is about people daring to lead a massive global energy transition that is already rapidly in play. The oil economy has created monopolies and concentrated wealth and power in the hands of the few. Solar power could democratise and decentralise energy in a way that rebuilds the ladder of economic opportunity for workers and entrepreneurs.
Post movie screening a short discussion on Solar projects going and Community Owned Renewable Energy in Geelong will take place. A quick overview of Geelong Sustainability's community focused initiatives will also be given initially before the discussion.

About the Film
An unemployed American worker, a Tea Party activist, and a Chinese solar entrepreneur race to lead the clean energy future. But who wins and who loses the battle for power in the 21st century?
Through the stories of workers and entrepreneurs in the U.S. and China, Catching the Sun captures the global race to lead the clean energy future. Over the course of a solar jobs training program, Catching the Sun follows the hope and heartbreak of unemployed American workers seeking jobs in the solar industry. With countries like China investing in innovative technologies and capitalising on this trillion-dollar opportunity, Catching the Sun tells the story of the global energy transition from the perspective of workers and entrepreneurs building solutions to income inequality and climate change with their own hands. Their successes and failures speak to one of the biggest questions of our time: will the U.S. actually be able to build a clean energy economy?
