The Future of Energy is a powerful documentary that captures the movement across the Unites States to transition to renewable energy and what everyday people are doing to help foster that shift. It’s a positive film about the renewable energy revolution, and a love story about the countless individuals and communities that are re-imagining their relationship with the planet and with each other.
