Award-winning scholar Professor Joshua S. Goldstein and legendary three-time Academy Award-winning filmmaker Oliver Stone joined Harry Duke on The Drive on KSRO for a conversation about their film Nuclear Now. Listen HERE.
Rialto Cinemas has a long history of showing thought provoking documentary films around some of the most important issues impacting our society. Much like Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth, Oliver Stone’s new film Nuclear Now is both thought provoking and a call to have larger conversations about how we as a society deal with the devastating impacts of climate change. Rialto Cinemas is not taking a position on whether nuclear power is appropriate for our communities but we are saying let’s use this film as a starting point to have thoughtful and intelligent conversations about our options in dealing with climate change. We hope that you will come see this important film and consider it with an open mind. Thank you to our friends at Abramorama for providing us with this film.
“An intensely compelling, must-see documentary.”
—Owen Gleiberman, Variety
Climate Change: The existential crisis and challenge of our time.
Director Oliver Stone passionately presents the possibility of meeting
the challenge through the power of Nuclear energy.
As fossil fuels continue to cook the planet, the world is finally becoming forced to confront the influence of large oil companies and tactics that have enriched a small group of corporations and individuals for generations. Beneath our feet, Uranium atoms in the Earth’s crust hold incredibly concentrated energy. Science unlocked this energy in the mid-20th century, first for bombs and then to power submarines and the United States led the effort to generate electricity from this new source. However, in the mid 20th century, as societies began the transition to nuclear power and away from fossil fuels, a long-term PR campaign to scare the public began, funded in part by coal and oil interests. This campaign would sow fear about harmless low-level radiation and create confusion between nuclear weapons and nuclear power.
With unprecedented access to the nuclear industry in France, Russia, and the United States, iconic director Oliver Stone explores the possibility for the global community to overcome challenges like climate change and reach a brighter future through the power of nuclear energy – an option that may become the only viable way to ensure our continued survival sooner than we think.
