- Published: May 19, 2014
Local non-profit Community Solutions will premiere its latest film, “Passive House Revolution” at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 22, at the Glen Helen Auditorium (Vernet Ecological Center), 405 Corry Street, Yellow Springs.
The screening, which is free and open to the public, is the Ohio premiere of the film released last year. Produced by the Arthur Morgan Institute for Community Solutions and directed by Faith Morgan, “Passive House Revolution” follows the story of the how the Passive House is the only building standard which cuts a building’s heating and cooling energy and CO2 generation by 80 percent, the level that climate scientists are recommending by mid-century. The film showcases projects from Germany, where Passive House was developed, as well as California, New Mexico, Minnesota, Illinois, Oregon and Ohio.
Community Solutions has also helped bring the Passive House revolution to Yellow Springs, and the film features several local Passive House residences, commercial buildings and retrofits and includes interviews with Andrew Kline, Jonathan Brown, Roy Eastman and Bob Brecha. Other local people involved in the film were Jeanna Breza, as narrator, Randy Villars, of Yellow Springs Green Glen Productions and David Spyridon, who wrote music, Carl Schumacher, who played some music, and editor Eric Johnson.
Previously, Community Solutions released “The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil,” which has sold more than 20,000 copies and been translated into 15 foreign languages.
