Film Screening Hosted by DC SUN – The 4th Revolution

By Emily Steiver on August 29, 2011

Tuesday September 13
Screening of The 4th Revolution
Directed by Carl A. Fechner

DC Solar United Neighborhoods and the WASHINGTON FILM INSTITUTE’s Green Screen Series invite you to a screening of Carl Fechner’s The 4th Revolution — Energy Autonomy, courtesy of the Goethe Institut, at 700 Eye Street, NW on Tuesday, September 13, 2011 at 6:30 PM.
Scott Sklar, of The Stella Group, will introduce the film and moderate a panel discussion — “A global context for US renewable advocacy” — immediately after the film.
If Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth begged the central question of climate change “What is to be done?” Fechner’s lushly photographed film provides a substantive answer that is well worth the wait.
The late Dr. Hermann Scheer, German Bundestag member and Chair of the World Council for Renewable Energy presents proofs that renewables can replace fossil and nuclear fuels, while offering a way out of the environmental rock and the economic hard place in which oil dependence has trapped developed and developing countries alike.
The film goes directly to Mali, the Amazon Rainforest, China, Bangladesh and Europe — to show how renewables are doing just that.
A reception will be held afterward, provided by the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, DC.
Seating is limited so please RSVP now to reserve a space.  Click Below for More Info and Online Registration….
