A Road Not Taken

Una strada non imboccata
by Christina Hemauer, Roman Keller Documentary Svizzera/Switzerland 2010 66'

With near-visionary farsightedness, Jimmy Carter, 2 years into his presidency, had 32 solar panels installed on the White House roof in 1979. Unsurprisingly, Ronald Reagan had them removed 7 years later, signalling a radical turn in energy policy of the United States. Some 30 years later, Christina Hemauer and Roman Keller retrace the history of the White House panels and the events surrounding the 1973 oil crisis which marked an entire decade.  <%YOUTUBE=1iwf97HupZ4%>
