Powerful is a hit in Paris

As attractive as it was to fly to Paris for the two screenings of my film Powerful: Energy for Everyone, I settled for being there by Skype. The recent Festival International du Film d’environnement screened Powerful twice during the week of the event. Over 150 people attended the screenings. Each screening was followed by a lively discussion session carried out by Skype. Although technical difficulties ended the second discussion prematurely, it was clear that the audience had enjoyed the film, and that — as intended — it had stimulated even more questions than it answers. That was my objective: to get people thinking about how they use/waste their energy, how they can better direct it, and how they can use their power as a citizen to do better and demand better of elected officials and “powerful” authorities.
