    Hi Allstars,
    A free screening of a film that played well at Sundance. Filmmakers will be present to discuss.

    Subject: Pandora's Promise at UC Berkeley, Friday, April 12 at 5:30 pm


    Film Screening & Discussion with the Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Robert Stone

    Friday, April 12, 5:30 pm
    Sibley Auditorium, Bechtel Engineering Center, UC Berkeley
    Free for general public

    Panelists: Robert Stone, Michael Shellenberger, Prof. Joonhong Ahn and Prof. Per Peterson
    Moderator: John Fowler, KTVU Channel 2 Science Editor

    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. 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.

    PANDORA’S PROMISE inspires serious and realistic debate about how mankind will continue to power modern civilization without destroying it.

    The documentary will be released in movie theaters nation-wide beginning June 2013.
