Documentary

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?
