Cinema Ventures presents: Pandora’s Promise
14 Oct 2013 | Monday
Pandora’s Promise asks whether the one technology we fear most could save our planet from a climate catastrophe, while providing the energy needed to lift billions of people in the developing world out of poverty.
In his controversial new film, Academy-Award® nominated director, Robert Stone, tells the intensely personal stories of environmentalists and energy experts who have undergone a radical conversion from being fiercely anti to strongly pro-nuclear energy, risking their careers and reputations in the process.
Stone exposes this controversy within the environmental movement head-on with stories of defection by heavy weights including Stewart Brand, Richard Rhodes, Gwyneth Cravens, Mark Lynas and Michael Shellenberger. Undaunted and fearlessly independent, Pandora’s Promise is a landmark work that is forever changing the conversation about the myths and science behind this deeply emotional and polarising issue.
