view posterTake Back Your Power, an eye-opening documentary which investigates the “smart” meter program currently being implemented worldwide by most of the major utility companies, is set to tour California next week.

The “smart” meter battle continues to heat up in the golden state – and many other regions worldwide – as people become increasingly aware of an unprecedented range of issues including damage to public health, in-home privacy, grid and home hacking vulnerability, systemic issues causing billing increases, and corporate fraud.

About the film Take Back Your Power:

“Over the past eighteen months in shooting and developing this film, it became clear that the issue of “smart” meters is of critical importance at this time in our world. We’ve been largely kept in the dark about it – aside from the information from a growing number of concerned and aware groups have helped bring to light. It’s time this subject matter is brought out for public discussion and properly understood, so we can decide if this is a direction we’d like society to take.

“Our project started out as me and my cameraman friend doing several interviews with people experiencing health symptoms following the installation of an electricity meter. Over 70 interviews from 4 countries later, it’s now evolved into a full-length feature film about 90 minutes in length, with a Tom Clancy-esque plot.

“It’s our intention, with this film, that the rest of the world could have access to understand what’s at stake in this issue, as it relates to the direction that the people would like our society to take, at this time.“

What to expect in the film:

“We decided to go a direction that stays ‘on-track’ and focused on the ‘smart’ grid and metering issue, and the areas of our lives for which there are profound implications. This topic is also quite complex. While we did vast amounts of research leading to a discussion of the larger context of and history behind the “smart” grid, we decided not to go too far in this direction in the film. So the film stays highly accessible to all ages and backgrounds, and as many people as possible can benefit from the discussion and be empowered to participate.

“I feel that it’s time to have this topic properly covered in an accurate and entertaining film – one which connects the dots and asks important questions of the audience – and I’m very glad to be getting the film released and publicly available.”
