Through the Lens: Happening

Dec 4, 2017

There’s a lot of talk about renewable energy these days. But what’s really happening? Will renewables ever replace fossil fuels? In a new documentary, filmmaker James Redford travels the country to find out just how far renewable energy can take us.

Monday, we continue our Through the Lens series with filmmaker James Redford’s latest documentary. It’s about his quest to learn more about renewable energy. Redford wanted to know just how far it can take us. So he traveled across America, from Georgetown, Texas, to Buffalo, New York, and found communities that are safer, healthier, and thriving economically because they've replaced fossil fuels with renewables. Redford joins us to discuss his journey and what he calls “the dawn of the clean energy era.”

On Thursday, December 14, RadioWest and the Utah Film Center will present a free screening of James Redford's documentary film Happening: A Clean Energy Revolution as part of our Through the Lens series. It's at 7:00 p.m. at the Rose  Wagner Performing Arts Center in downtown Salt Lake City. Redford will join us in-person for a Q-and-A after the film. You can get more information, and invite your friends, through our Facebook event.
