Cost: Free
A feature-length documentary about the history and future of nuclear power.

USA | 87 min | NR | Digital Projection | Dir. Robert Stone

A feature-length documentary about the history and future of nuclear power. The film explores how and why mankind's most feared and controversial technological discovery is now passionately embraced by many of those who once led the charge against it. Operating as history, cultural meditation and contemporary exploration, PANDORA'S PROMISE aims to inspire a serious and realistic debate over what is without question the most important question of our time: how do we continue to power modern civilization without destroying it?

"Like many advocacy documentaries, it offers a one-sided argument. This time, however, it's advanced by people who spent much of their lives on the opposite side." - Colin Covert (Star Tribune)

*Screening presented in collaboration with theĀ UW-American Nuclear Society (ANS).
