About the Movie
Through the stories of workers and entrepreneurs in the U.S. and China, Catching the Sun captures the global race to lead the clean energy future. Over the course of a solar jobs training program, Catching the Sun follows the hope and heartbreak of unemployed American workers seeking jobs in the solar industry. With countries like China investing in innovative technologies and capitalizing on this trillion-dollar opportunity, Catching the Sun tells the story of the global energy transition from the perspective of workers and entrepreneurs building solutions to income inequality and climate change with their own hands. Their successes and failures speak to one of the biggest questions of our time: will the U.S. actually be able to build a clean energy economy?

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The battle for a greener tomorrow, we are reminded, has its casualties.
Rotten: While it's admittedly refreshing to see a documentary taking a decidedly sunnier, pro-active approach to pressing environmental issues, "Catching the Sun" could have benefited from a more concentrated focus.
Fresh: The film is most persuasive when demonstrating that the need for solar energy transcends partisan politics.
