UNSW Nuclear Society Atomic Hope Film Screening and Discussion

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Atomic Hope is an educational film about the challenges of the modern climate movement and why nuclear energy isn't discussed as much as it should be. Join the UNSW Nuclear Society on Thursday 4th March at 5:00pm on campus at the UNSW Business School Room 205 for a film screening, post film discussion and networking event. 

"Atomic Hope" is a documentary that delves into the controversial and highly debated topic of nuclear energy, particularly in the context of global climate change. Directed by Frankie Fenton, this film spans over a decade and travels across continents, from Japan to Switzerland, America to Australia. It provides an intimate look into the lives and beliefs of a small but mighty group of pro-nuclear activists who advocate for nuclear power as a key solution to decarbonizing our energy systems.
The narrative of "Atomic Hope" is structured to present a multi-faceted view of the nuclear debate. The film does not shy away from the contentious issues surrounding nuclear energy, such as the risks of nuclear meltdowns, the high costs of nuclear plant construction, radiation fears, and the management of nuclear waste. These concerns are juxtaposed with the urgent need to address climate change and the potential role of nuclear power in achieving this goal.
