Sedona News – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of “Grid Down, Power Up” on Wednesday and Thursday, Sept. 20 and 21 at 4:00 p.m. at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
The producer/director of “Grid Down, Power Up”, David Tice, will be in Sedona to host the film and conduct a Q&A discussion following both screenings.
Dennis Quaid hosts an alarming look into the potential of life without power. A dynamic legion of energy, economic, national security, and infrastructure experts fearlessly expose our most critical global threat: the vulnerability of our nation’s power grids. Together they inform the public of imminent threats and the infinite horrors in store from prolonged power loss. Buckle down and power up with this series of shocking scenarios.
Grid failure is a real and imminent threat, a devastatingly deadly occurrence leading to life-threatening shortages of heat, food, and water. If protective measures are not taken, we will experience catastrophic failures leaving citizens in states of starvation, death, destruction, and darkness for months.
Reports released from Texas’ 3-day “snowmageddon” indicate a minimum death toll of 246, with some estimates climbing as high as 702. An outage of 1-2 years would lead to 10,000,000+ deaths. One thing is evident: the clock is ticking, and if nothing changes, the power may go out for good.
“Grid Down, Power Up” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Wednesday and Thursday, Sept. 20 and 21 at 4:00 p.m. Tickets are $12 general admission, or $9 for Film Festival members. For tickets and more information, please call 928-282-1177. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. Hwy. 89A, in West Sedona.
