Documentary filmmaker Charles Ferguson won an Oscar for his last feature, 2010’s Inside Job, a deep — and deeply disturbing — dive into the 2008 financial crash. Now he’s turning his attention to an equally sprawling and bewildering subject — climate change — with his new feature-length documentary Time to Choose. Narrated by Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Oscar Isaac, the film travels from Appalachian coal country to Nigerian oil fields to Indonesian rain forests to document just how big a toll environmental changes are already exacting.
The clip starts with a series of dire pronouncements (“We do have a clock in front of us.”) from such experts as former U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu, food writer Michael Pollan, and anthropologist Jane Goodall. But then the trailer pivots to the movie’s ultimate theme: that some solutions — whether they be renewable energy, new clean-car technologies, or a move to a more plant-based diet — are already at hand. In the clip below, watch as Isaac narrates a segment on the solar fields that are already powering Google headquarters in California, an IKEA store in New York, and an enormous plant in China. https://www.yahoo.com/movies/time-to-choose-trailer-the-oscar-winner-153246940.html
