Isang Litrong Liwanag Shows How Human-Powered Solutions Can Revolutionize our Approach to Climate Change
July 22, 2012
MANILA – JULY 22 – Isang Litrong Liwanag (1 Liter of Light), the story of the first grassroots solar lighting program in the world, will make its national debut in a special screening at the Cinemalaya film festival on Thursday, July 26, at 3:30pm in the Dream Theatre.
Directed by Ms. Joy Aquino, the documentary follows the first efforts of the MyShelter Foundation and its volunteers as they bring the green revolution to the bottom 99% in the Philippines and around the world.
Empowering local entrepreneurs and marginalized groups like prison detainees and trash pickers, Isang Litrong Liwanag shows how simple technologies powered by human hands can immediately address the access to energy gap, one of the most critical issues facing the planet today.
In a world where over one billion people currently lack access to or cannot afford electricity, there are few solutions that reach the underprivileged communities that need them most. Using discarded plastic bottles, water, and a bit of bleach, 1 Liter of Light has given hope to thousands by lighting up their homes with low-cost, zero-carbon emission solar bottle bulbs. What started out as an initiative with one carpenter and one set of tools in San Pedro, Laguna, is now a global movement, with youth groups and volunteers replicating the project in at least ten countries around the world.
Isang Litrong Liwanag will inspire audiences by sharing the story of how a developing country can share its gift of knowledge with the rest of the world and revolutionize the way Filipinos think about solutions to climate change.
