The Solar Film was produced by the famous designer Saul Bass and commissioned by Robert Redford. I feel a bit sad seeing how little progress has been made in the last 30 years, but we have to realize that solar energy is anything but simple. Even the best solar cells are incredibly inefficient. For solar to be a viable replacement we will need a lot of innovation.
As a side note, the production house for this film, Pyramid, is the same for the film Powers of Ten . Does anybody know more about Pyramid, like where to find their films? We need some modern-day equivalents to these films.
