Juice tells the human story of electricity and explains why power equals power. To illuminate its importance, the Juice team traveled 60,000 miles to gather 40 on-camera interviews with people from seven countries on five continents. Juice shows how electricity explains everything from women's rights and climate change to Bitcoin mining and indoor marijuana production. Juice explains who has electricity, who's getting it, and how developing countries all over the world are working to bring their people out of the dark and into the light. Written by Tyson Culver

User Reviews

Humanist look at deep decarbonization. Very illuminating.
17 December 2020 | by meyer-76416See all my reviews

It's so easy for us in high-energy countries to forget the struggles of those without. This documentary takes you to the places and people that are surviving using less electricity per year than a typical refrigerator does, and it does so with fantastic editing, animations, and sound design!

It's a pragmatic yet provocative perspective seldom seen in environmental documentaries, telling the story of humanity's relationship with energy-- the good, the bad, and the possible. It may just change the way you view electricity, and your role in a world where so many still lack access to it.
