You won’t see here a lot of beauty shots of solar panels but the people actually bringing a clean energy future into the present. This movie about solar energy focuses on the view of the actual “workers” of the industry, like solar panel installers, factory workers and entrepreneurs.
“We need a story that is about job creation, national competitiveness, and the fact that this is about innovation and the technologies of the future,” Said Shalini Kantayya, the filmmaker. “The people that are clinging to last century’s technology are on the wrong side of history. It’s about showing that what’s good for the polar bears is also good for the working class.”
This film happens when you get the chance to ask world class business leaders and companies about green businesses. Filmmaker Alexis Posternak did that for the last 3 years to put together a documentary about hope, that highlights the opportunities those Green Giants are creating.
Top big profit companies and small alternative producers, personalities, politics consultants and scientists joined in the quest of sustainability as the only way to face the future.

This film spins around the idea of a human colonization of Mars, and that chance of creating a nice planet for human living or another space to tear down and ruin.
What we need to understand about the Earth and the environment before attempt to recreate it somewhere else, from Emmy-nominated filmmaker Ian Cheney’s.
“It seems like at some point humans will colonize Mars, and that raises the question of what kind of planet we will make of it.”
The horrors of canned hunt and lions bred specially to it, this documentary uncovers the horrors of this legal multi-million dollar industry in Africa.
Trade shows and farms are the face and factory for this barbaric practice in the name of tourism and sport.
“Every single day in South Africa at least two to three captive bred or tame lions are being killed in canned hunts. And hundreds more are slaughtered annually for the lion bone trade.
The Blood Lions story is a compelling call to action to have these practices stopped.”
To recover the bright side of life, this film was made to honor the U.S. National Park Service Centennial, with astonishing cinematics and the voice of Robert Redford.
Filmed specially for IMAX, this movie features the wonders of Yellowstone, Glacier National Park, Yosemite, and Arches.
“National Parks Adventure captures the stunning beauty of our wild places and reminds us these landscapes are an essential part of the human spirit.”
