The Future of Energy: Lateral Power to the People is a powerful documentary that captures the movement across the United States to transition to renewable energy and what everyday people can do to help foster the shift.

All around the world a powerful transition is taking place. Communities are building local movements to address economic instability and the worst effects of climate change. Energy lies at the heart of our global society, and how we consume it impacts everything from the air we breathe and the food we eat, to our jobs and the health of our families.

The Future of Energy is a positive, fun film that focuses on energy solutions and the people behind the renewable energy revolution. It's a love story about people re-imagining their relationship to the planet, and falling back in love with the Earth and each other.†

Featuring:†Jeremy Rifkin, Bill McKibben, Joanna Macy, Danny Kennedy, Pandora Thomas, Diane Moss and Theo Badashi.
