“I needed the shot of encouragement that this movie gives. I think that was the thing that I will keep in my heart: We will incur roadblocks, but we will prevail. And the coolest and most promising energy is the energy of ‘We The People.’”


LISA JACKSON,
VP of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives, Apple, Inc.


Most Americans understand and accept the reality of climate change. Nonetheless, many of us feel uncertain about what we, as individuals, can do. For many of us, solutions to climate change seem out of reach, out of scale and fatally entwined in partisan politics.

Meanwhile, the clean energy revolution is quietly underway. Electricity generated from wind and solar is increasingly more affordable than electricity generated from fossil fuels, and the growth curve for the generation and storage of renewable energy now resembles the exponential curves seen with the advent of radio, TV, and the internet.

But can we meet all of our our energy needs with renewable energy? How would we do that? And, most importantly, will we do that? Happening seeks to answer these important questions.

Director James Redford says: "During the journey of making 'Happening,' I met many inspiring citizens, business leaders and politicians leading the clean energy revolution, but the most significant journey involved my own heart and mind. At the start of 'Happening,' I was feeling pretty cynical about the value of political engagement. Three years later, I have witnessed first-hand the enduring value of politically engaged citizenry."

Presented as part of our monthly Environmental Film Series, through our ongoing partnership with the Havre de Grace Maritime Museum.

All film screenings are free to the public, and are held inside the Havre de Grace Maritime Museum's main gallery. A discussion will follow the film.
