Through the stories of workers and entrepreneurs in the U.S. and China, Catching the Sun is a feature length documentary that explores the global race to a clean energy future. Catching the Sun follows the hope and heartbreak of unemployed American workers seeking jobs in the solar industry and sheds light on the path to an economically and environmentally sustainable future. Through personal stories that illuminate the universal theme of hope for a better life, and set against the struggle to build a ‘green economy’, Catching the Sun will engage new audiences in solutions to climate change and income inequality.

About the SUNCATCHER Campaign: 

Catching the Sun offers a glimpse into the future of energy– and suggests how people can take power generation into their own hands. The overarching goal of the SUNCATCHER campaign is to use a compelling film to raise public understanding of the complex issues surrounding the U.S.’s transition to clean energy. The campaign will tackle the startling gap in awareness about the affordability of solar power, and how to access it. The SUNCATCHER campaign aims to advance the national dialogue, and engage communities across the country to advocate for a clean energy future, accessible to all.
