For Release: April 06, 2011
Marylhurst University will host a film viewing and directors talk with Matt Briggs, Lake Oswego resident and director of "Deep Green," a documentary about solutions to stop global warming. Based on six years of research, "Deep Green" brings clarity to this increasingly urgent situation.
Through rare new footage, the film goes behind-the-scenes of China's green revolution with high-speed train lines under construction and subways in every city. In Sweden, filmmakers visited "the greenest city in Europe" to learn their secrets. In Germany and Spain, Briggs was given a preview of the just-approved DESERTEC project — a super-sized smart grid to supply diverse renewable energies to all of Europe and North Africa. "Deep Green's" stories from around the world are filled with startling revelations and fascinating facts.
