Happening: A Clean Energy Revolution – One Earth Film Fest

March 4, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm CST


Join Elmhurst Cool Cities and Elmhurst College during the One Earth Film Festival for this free showing of the documentary Happening: A Clean Energy Revolution. The One Earth Film Festival presents compelling environmental films and programming to bring about an understanding of climate change, sustainability and the power of people, and to initiate positive actions for the planet.


About the Film:

When the issue of renewable energy comes up, it’s common to think, “that’s a future thing. It’s like sci-fi.” Well, this film is here to tell you, the clean energy revolution is happening right now. Director James Redford, an award-winning filmmaker…and, yes, Hollywood legend Robert Redford’s son…takes us on his personal journey into the dawn of the clean energy era as it creates jobs, turns profits, and makes communities stronger and healthier. “Reaching well beyond a story of technology and innovation, Happening explores issues of human resilience, social justice, embracing the future, and finding hope for our survival”, says Redford.

As the state of Illinois is posed to implement funding and resources through the Future Energy Jobs Act of 2017, we have our own clean energy and social equity ideas and stores to explore.

Teens and young adults encouraged to attend.

Tickets are free – SPACE IS LIMITED! This movie is expected to sell-out.

Avoid long lines and get best seats by arriving up to 30 minutes before the film start time.
