At the dawn of the clean-energy era, filmmaker Jamie Redford embarks on a colorful personal journey to meet the people and companies that are creating jobs, turning profits, and making communities stronger and healthier across the U.S. Unlikely entrepreneurs in towns from Lehi, Utah, to Georgetown, Texas, to Buffalo, N.Y., reveal their pioneering clean-energy solutions, with Redford serving as the audience’s surrogate as he learns both how clean energy works and what the ongoing changes in energy production and consumption mean on a personal level. While telling an enlightening story about technology and innovation, “Happening” also explores issues of human resilience and social justice, encouraging viewers to embrace the future and find hope for our collective survival in the face of significant challenges.
