Pandora's Promise

The atomic bomb and meltdowns like Fukushima have made nuclear power synonymous with global disaster. But what if we've got nuclear power wrong? An audience favorite at the Sundance Film Festival, 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, 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, riskingtheir 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 polarizing issue.

"PROVOCATIVE and IMPORTANT, Pandora's Promise is essential viewing." - Andrew Revkin, The New York Times

"OPEN, EARNEST, UNABASHED, it makes a persuasive case. To any viewer with an open mind, Pandora's Promise may help encourage fresh thinking about the huge pros, as well as the better known cons, of this important, if controversial, source of clean energy." - David Ropeik, Scientific American

"Whatever your stance, Stone's compelling film opens Pandora's Box and promises to change the conversation for years to come" - Sundance Film Festival

"If you have any interest in climate change go see Pandora's Promise." - Michael Specter, The New Yorker
