LITER of Light, a Filipino-born global grassroots solar lighting movement, will premiere a pioneering environmental film at Expo 2020 during the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Climate Week. The documentary seeks to put a spotlight on the need to address social inequalities and for a call for more urgent and united action “to protect our people and future generations”; specially developing countries already experiencing adverse effects of the environment.
The “Theory of Light” will receive its first public presentation at the world's biggest show on March 27, 2022 in front of over 100 dignitaries and guests at the Opportunity Forum at the Expo 2020 Dubai. It is a unique opportunity to share the impact of a Philippine innovation in building resilient communities with a broad audience that has convened in Dubai because of their commitment to sustainability.
This project is supported by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change where the Liter of Light is a Momentum for Change awardee ( and will feature interviews of Niclas Svenningsen, UN Global Climate Action manager.
Part historical chronicle, part environmental lesson, “Theory of Light” shows how Liter of Light is reinvigorating efforts to take action because of the increasing impact of climate change and inspiring new generations of innovators from the Global South to come up with ideas that will change the world.
The Philippines is one of the most climate vulnerable countries in the world. Just last December, a new Category 5 storm, Super Typhoon “Rai” (“Odette”), tore through the Philippines, killing more than 400 people and destroying hundreds of thousands of homes.
Filmmaker J.P. Gopez helmed the project. It is also executive produced by Liter of Light founder Illac Diaz, SM Prime President Hans Sy, TBA Studios CEOs E.A. Rocha and Fernando Ortigas with TBA's Executive Vice President and General Manager Daphne Chiu and Film Development Manager Margie Navarro co-producing.
