[ExI] Solarpunk Is Growing a Gorgeous New World in the Cracks of the Old One

Dystopian fiction is cheap to make and sell...but the tidal shift to
dystopias has left a gaping demand for positive visions.

I wonder, at what point does it become obvious it would be more profitable
to make a solarpunk film than yet another grimderp dystopian film?

Maybe some "small force vs. The Power" - perhaps trying to set up wind
power in Alaska while fossil fuel interests try to take it down, or perhaps
some agtech growing enough people to feed a certain large city but the
traditional farming corporation (which used to feed the city, and wants the
city dependent on it) keeps trying to use law and goons to smash the
operation (only to find the agtech has set up vertical farming within the
city, where the police thwart sabotage attempts)?
