Synopsis

UK GREEN FILM FESTIVAL


The UK Green Film Festival is an annual nationwide festival with the aim of bringing environmentally themed films to audiences across the UK. The Rio is delighted once again to be presenting this year's selection of outstanding and important films.


In the south of France, scientists from 37 countries are building the most complex machine ever attempted: an artificial sun. If they get it right, it will illuminate the way to produce clean, cheap, abundant energy for millions of years. If they fail, it will be one of the biggest scientific failures of all time.


Nuclear fusion has been the holy grail of energy for many decades now. It’s the process that drives stars, the ultimate source of energy in the universe. The possibility that fusion might be achievable on Earth as an energy source has driven scientists to the edge of reason for almost a century.


“This fascinating documentary about the quest for nuclear fusion as a silver bullet for the world's energy thirst is at the same time informative and entertaining.” Screen Anarchy
