Film Night: Current Revolution-Transforming America's Electric Grid
Thursday, 25 April 2019,  7:30 pm -  9:00 pm

For decades the utilities industry has been a driving engine of the U.S. economy, contributing significantly to our progress and standard of living, with a business model that focused on centralized generation. Today, however, in the face of a crisis that requires capturing new market share, the industry has its sights on the transportation sector. This shift could catalyze the electric vehicle industry but also sets it on a collision course with major petroleum interests. This new film by the American Resilience Project, along with associated media, educational materials, and an advocacy campaign, tackles the challenge of modernizing the power grid. Through interviews, observational, and archival footage with top executives, military personnel, utilities workers, and elected officials, the film tells the story of a towering American industry on the brink of massive change. Whether it fails, prevails, or adapts, the outcome will profoundly affect us all.

On Thursday, April 25 at 7:30pm, as part of 2019 Climate Spring, CAB and United Parish’s GreenUP are hosting a screening of Current Revolution: Transforming America's Electric Grid in the Parlor, United Parish, 210 Harvard St (at the corner of Marion St) Brookline.

Current Revolution: Transforming America's Electric Grid is the new documentary by the production team that made Tidewater, the excellent film shown at last year’s Climate Spring).
A discussion will follow the screening.
