Join the revolution and bring “Take Back Your Power” to your local theater, without a booking cost
Seattle, WA (Oct 9, 2014) – BigPitcher Films and Tugg, Inc. (www.tugg.com) are pleased to announce that Take Back Your Power (2014 Edition) is now available to screen in theaters across the USA, Australia and New Zealand, with Canada supported for select screenings.
Take Back Your Power is an inspiring documentary which investigates the so-named “smart grid” and “smart meters” being installed by utilities worldwide. Del Sol’s award-winning film uncovers shocking evidence of in-home privacy invasions, increased utility bills, health & environmental harm, fires and unprecedented hacking vulnerability – and lights the way toward solutions.
Tugg is a web-platform that enables individuals to choose the films that play in their local theaters, and create their own theatrical events – without any booking cost.
“The team at Take Back Your Power are pleased to partner with Tugg to provide the opportunity to see the final 2014 Edition of the film in local theaters everywhere – without any booking or rental cost! After several film festivals and more than 180 community screenings worldwide, our initiative with Tugg is helping the film achieve the next level of awareness and impact. We hope that all of our supporters take advantage of this unique program, book a theater and promote the heck out of their event,” said Josh del Sol, director and producer of Take Back Your Power.
