Synopsis:Bangladesh is home to one of the fastest growing solar markets in the world. Solar energy is lighting up homes and schools, and has reached around one in ten people. This film brings together the voices of women who have installed solar panels, and people involved in solar energy across the country, from professors to bankers. The goal is to shed light on people’s experiences and explore the impacts on people’s daily lives. With over 1 billion people across the world still lacking access to electricity – what can we learn from Bangladesh’s solar revolution?
