Tomorrow's Power

"Tomorrow's Power" showcases three communities around the world and their responses to economic and environmental emergencies. In the war-torn, oil-rich Arauca province in Colombia, communities have been building a peace process from the bottom up. In Germany activists are pushing the country to fully divest from fossil-fuel extraction and complete its transition to renewable energy. In Gaza health practitioners are harnessing solar power to battle daily life-threatening energy blackouts in hospitals.

"Tomorrow's Power" provides exciting insights into the everyday life of a hospital in the Gaza Strip and into the processes of a small Colombian town.

The Middle East conflict, which plays a significant role in the energy crisis in Gaza, is unfortunately portrayed in a rather one-sided and unreflected way. Also, the selection and combination of the 3 movements presented is not quite plausible and takes away something of the film's impact.
