Smart meter documentary film wins humanitarian award

LA JOLLA, CALIFORNIA – The smart meter documentary film, “Take Back Your Power” has been named this year’s winner of the Indie Fest Annual Humanitarian Award.

Take Back Your Power - Winner, Indie Fest Annual Humanitarian AwardTake Back Your Power follows filmmaker Josh del Sol as he investigates “smart” meter technology, being deployed by utilities and governments to harvest data from within private homes and introduce new pricing schemes. With compelling insight from whistleblowers, government agents, lawyers, environmentalists and doctors, the documentary “exposes corporate corruption and the erosion of human rights in the name of ‘going green’.”

Indie Fest Coordinator Thomas Baker, PhD stated, “Take Back Your Power takes on the daunting yet important task of educating people worldwide about the surveillance, hacking, health, home safety, and consumer cost concerns linked to so-called ‘smart’ utility meters. It was selected out of hundreds of films for our Annual Humanitarian award because it delves into the heart of what is possibly the main problem in our world today: corporations taking over without conscience, and causing extreme levels of harm in the process.”
