CLIMATE CHANGE – Its scope is truly global, with footage and interviews from five continents. The film’s investigation of the true costs of fossil fuels and industrialized agriculture takes audiences inside the drivers of these global phenomena. Audiences meet Appalachian residents suffering from coal-poisoned waters, descend into the dangerous coal pits of China, see the red night skies of Nigeria’s oil and gas lands, and hear from courageous officials fighting corruption and deforestation in Indonesia. Through these portraits and more, director Charles Ferguson shows the toll the status quo is taking on human lives and the world around us.

But “Time to Choose” also features world-renowned entrepreneurs, innovators, and thought leaders who point the way to a better world. Lyndon Rive, CEO of SolarCity and Nobel Prize winner Mohammed Yunus show viewers how citizens around the globe are accessing affordable renewable energy, while Dr. Jane Goodall connects climate to the places and animals we love. Governor Jerry Brown urges leaders to join the path to sustainability and Chinese wind and solar manufacturers discuss how they’ve built some of the largest renewable energy installations in the world. Plus, regular people from around the world talk about winning fights to save their communities from the effects of fossil fuels and industrial agriculture.

“Time to Choose” leaves audiences understanding not only what is wrong, but what needs to be done to fix it. It looks squarely at our unique common moment on earth, with an eye to helping change the course of human history.

Narrated by award-winning actor Oscar Isaac, “Time to Choose” also delivers a clear message to audiences: we can take action to stop this global threat. It is the first major film to offer compelling stories of the innovators, leaders and average people fighting on the front lines for a cleaner, more sustainable world.

Special Guests: Lynn Fitz-Hugh, former chair of 350 Seattle, now director of One Sustainable Planet (1SP)
