Storyline

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?

Commercial for nuclear power.
27 January 2015 | by (dfw) – See all my reviews

Basically an extended interview with 3 or 4 people who were formerly against nuclear power and are now in favor of it. Their reasons seem to be mainly a matter of convenience. The one thing I was looking for, advancements in technology that address the serious problems with nuclear power, wasn't mentioned. And apparently this had no impact or these peoples change of heart. A lot of smoke and mirrors was on tap. The anti-nuclear side was represented by the biggest crackpot they could find (she claims millions died at Chernobyl). A discussion of the impracticality of cutting demand is set against a backdrop of cities with lighted signs. It is clearly stated that impoverished people around the world would have their lives miraculously improved if they had nuclear power. One of these people states flat out that being against nuclear power is being for fossil fuel. Unsubtantiated claims about the environmental impact of various energy sources are made. An unidentified device is used to show the numbers on it's display are different in different places. Through in some Democrat bashing and some nifty charts and graphs and you have "Pandoras Promise". I wonder if the makers of this film are familiar with the story of Pandoras Box?
