From the film’s producers:
A hit at the Sundance Film Festival, PANDORA’S PROMISE dares to tackle the emerging divide within the environmental movement over nuclear energy through the intimately told stories of thinkers, experts and authors who have come to change their minds about nuclear power. Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker Robert Stone elegantly interweaves the personal narratives of Stewart Brand, Richard Rhodes, Gwyneth Cravens, Mark Lynas and Michael Shellenberger. By unearthing their personal transformations, Stone pierces commonly held assumptions and provides a captivating deconstruction of popular myths about radiation, waste and weapons, taking viewers on a mind-altering journey.
PANDORA’S PROMISE inspires serious and realistic debate about how mankind will continue to power modern civilization without destroying it.
