  • A Message from the Director

    I made TIME TO CHOOSE because climate change is the most important issue facing humanity and we urgently need broader understanding of how enormously we would all benefit from addressing it. Fortunately it is a challenge that we hold in common, and the film shows that across the globe, in myriad ways, people are coming together to find and implement solutions. We’re not too late, and our hope is that TIME TO CHOOSE will help audiences see both the tragedy that is unfolding and the remarkable and innovative ways in which humanity is finding a better way forward.

    In making the film, my team and I traveled to parts of the world where climate solutions are not only politically unpopular – it is often personally dangerous to advocate them. I think it’s important for people to understand that the corruption, inequality and violence faced by many people the world over are tied to the pollution, waste and destruction that are fueling climate change. If we solve one, we help solve the other.

    My most surprising discovery in making this film is also the most crucial fact about this issue: the solutions to climate change are already here, waiting for us. We saw them in places as diverse as Indonesia, Kenya, China, Western Europe and California. Everywhere we traveled, people were developing new ways of living and benefiting from them. Their stories and their work are what will lead us forward.

    I was fortunate enough to cross paths with Tom Dinwoodie, a co-founder of SunPower, just as my own interest in climate change and the possibilities of new technology was peaking, and he agreed to come on board the film as an executive producer and financier. His unwavering support made it possible for me to bring my vision to the screen and has helped make Time to Choose both a project that’s extremely meaningful to me and I hope truly groundbreaking.

    There is simply no reason not to move into a new, sustainable world. I believe people are ready for that, and our hope is that TIME TO CHOOSE will help inspire audiences to be part of this new future.
