In 2009, documentary filmmaker Harry Lynch and geologist Dr. Scott Tinker set out to make a film on energy transition. The goal was not to advocate for one technology over another, not to suggest how the transition should happen — but to try to determine how it actually would happen, based on scientifically-sound investigation and the practical realities of the world of energy as we discovered them. The result is “Switch”.
What will it really take to transition from oil and coal to the energies of tomorrow? “Switch” goes where no film has gone before, deep into the world’s most restricted energy sites, to depoliticize competing power sources, make the technical accessible, and discover the truth of our energy future.
