48% of all CO2 generated and energy used in the U.S. comes from our buildings. Passive House: A Building Revolution explains this environmental challenge and opportunity. It shows that it is possible to reduce the primary energy used in buildings (for heating and cooling) by 80%, as compared to the 15 to 40% goals currently set by Energy Star, LEED, and the National Association of Homebuilders' (NAHB) Green Building Program. It also introduces the importance of retrofitting our 116 million existing homes. Documentary. 45 minutes. Digital Projection.

Meet & talk with the filmmakers after the screening!

Also screening: Passive Passion by Charlie Hoxie that showcases architects, builders, and home owners from across the country (including Yellow Springs and Urbana, OH), who share their experience of building a Passive House or doing a deep-energy retrofit. Documentary. 20 minutes. Digital Projection
