Washington, D.C. Premiere From office buildings that produce more energy than they use to electric cars with style, visionary and entrepreneurial minds today are working across the globe on the technologies that will take us away from reliance on fossil fuels and towards clean, renewable energy for all. The stakes are enormous, and so are the obstacles: lack of political will in the United States and many other countries, entrenched interests in the coal, gas and oil industries and the simple fact that reworking our energy infrastructure will be a difficult process. Instead of lingering on the problems, The 4th Revolution focuses on the solutions, also showing that these new methods and technologies are no longer distant dreams, but within our grasp. In German with English subtitles. Directed by Carl A. Fechner.
