“Most of Kenya’s 40 million people don’t have access to conventional electricity.” It’s an attention-getting quote from a new documentary on climate change that screens tonight at the Telluride Film Festival. Oscar-winning Inside Job filmmaker Charles Ferguson’s Time To Choose outlines the broad range of global climate challenges and focuses on the race against time to implement existing solutions. Spanning five continents, it focuses on the innovators, leaders and average people working to tackle the problem – from American farmers and African villagers to Indonesian anti-corruption officials and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs.
Oscar Isaac narrates the docu, to which Cinetic Media is selling rights. Ferguson directed Time To Choose, which he co-wrote with Chad Beck and produced with Audrey Marrs; the trio also worked together on Inside Job and the Oscar-nominated 2007 Iraq War documentary No End In Sight.
Tom Dinwoodie and Jeff Horowit are the exec producers.
