Green Wednesdays Frome presents….. Pandora’s Promise
Wednesday 10th September
Doors at 7pm // Music & Bar from 7:30pm // Films from 8:30pm
Green Wednesdays: Frome present Pandora’s Promise a documentary about environmentalists who have turned to Nuclear energy.
The second instalment is set to spark a deabte on the subject of sustainable energy sources, following a screening of the accliamed independent film from Academy Award nominated director, Robert Stone: Pandora’s Promise.
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, Robert 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, risking their 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.
After the film there will be a live Q&A skype with Robert Stone, and an audience discussion.
On display for the event will be an exhibition: Lin Hawkins – Power Stations
