Zero carbon film a world premiere

Hitachi has released what it says is the first film powered completely by zero-carbon energy.

A cast and crew of 30 came together to make it, using pedal power and a solar-powered generator to create a film that generated zero carbon emissions from energy. Oscar-winning director Sir Sam Mendes agreed to be the narrator as he saw it as an ‘opportunity to get involved in a project aiming for zero carbon emissions’.

He said: “This film highlights that beyond governments every industry and individual can play their part in making our planet greener, offering examples of ways in which it’s possible to reduce emissions. It’s a privilege to lend my voice to the project and speak in some small way to those attending COP26 and beyond.”

The film will run on global digital channels from mid-October and will also feature at Glasgow’s IMAX cinema during COP26.

Alistair Dormer, Chief Environmental Officer of Hitachi, Ltd., added: “We developed this film to show what was possible in the lead up to COP26. The creation of this world first was a huge feat, and we would like to thank everyone involved for their commitment to this important project.”
