Carbon Nation is a terrific documentary that is opening today for one week in:
And it is opening next Friday for one week in San Francisco, at the Landmark Opera Plaza Cinema. The DVD will be out next month.
You can see the trailer — which I’m not entirely thrilled with — here:
Yes, this is “a climate change solutions movie [that doesn't even care if you believe in climate change],” which I suppose is okay for marketing purposes.
True, the film doesn’t focus on global warming, but it does make clear that it is in fact happening and humans are the cause. I doubt many people who don’t accept climate science will go to a movie titled Carbon Nation, no matter how it is marketed.
What makes the movie worth seeing is the personality-driven stories, like the one-armed wind developer. The tone and pacing are quite breezy, so I’m confident you will both learn something and enjoy the movie.
I did get to see some early cuts of the movie and offered them a few suggestions. The movie is a success because of the vision of Director Peter Byck, and his decision to focus on winning stories.
For more information, go to the website, where you’ll see many other positive reviews.
The DVD is being released in April and I may do another post then.
