Synopsis

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. Stone elegantly interweaves the personal narratives of five extraordinary characters – Stewart Brand, Richard Rhodes, Gwyneth Cravens, Mark Lynas and Michael Shellenberger – to explore how these individuals have come to see advanced nuclear power as humankind's greatest hope. 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 riveting and mind-altering journey.
