Movie Info

In the next few decades, humankind will need to double, or even triple energy production as billions of people in the developing world lift themselves out of poverty and begin to live modern lives. Unless the source of this new energy is clean and non-CO2 emitting, the risk of triggering a devastating global climate catastrophe is all but certain. The magnitude of this dilemma, and the limitations of commonly proposed solutions, have left the mainstream environmental movement teetering between apocalyptic thinking and utter disarray. Plunging headfirst into this challenge comes PANDORA'S PROMISE, the highly anticipated and debated new film by acclaimed documentary filmmaker Robert Stone that recently premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Three years in the making and filmed on four continents, this meticulously researched and beautifully crafted film asks whether the most viable option we have to tackle climate change might be the one technology we fear the most: nuclear power.

  • Robert Stone's fascinating documentary makes a convincing case for a nuclear future.

    November 14, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Like so many campaigning docs this is much more interested in throwing darts at the other guys than giving us a balanced film.

    Time Out
    Top Critic
  • This documentary, from Robert Stone, sets out to think the unthinkable and ask the unaskable: should we learn to stop worrying and love nuclear energy?

    November 7, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Intelligent, possibly important, definitely counterintuitive -- but needs more reporting and context.

    November 6, 2013 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

    Newsday
    Top Critic
  • The film's tone is boosterish, and the cursory treatment of the cost of a nuclear-based energy overhaul, or the viability of renewable energy, tends to arouse skepticism rather than allay it.

    July 11, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • There's not much in the way of balance in this often bone-dry documentary about the bum rap nuclear power has gotten thanks to misinformed, if well-meaning, environmentalists and energy experts.
