Here’s a heads up about an announcement that will be made later today about a new documentary film, “The Believers” produced by 137 Films. The film is about the history and current state of the cold fusion field. I am told that a new web site will be launched and an announcement about the premiere will be made.
Here’s 137 Films’ burb about the film:
The Believers begins in March of 1989, when two respected chemists from the University of Utah stand in front of a wall of reporters; flashbulbs pop as the pair — one shy, the other cracking jokes— announce a startling claim: they have solved the world’s energy problems using seawater, batteries, and the mysterious glass contraption they hold proudly in their hands. “Cold Fusion” is born. Within days, Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann are on the cover of Time Magazine. But in three short months, their careers are in tatters, their reputations ruined, and Cold Fusion is synonymous with “bad science.”
Twenty-two years later, despite mainstream science’s continued disdain, professional and amateur scientists, a high school whiz kid, and a Hollywood-based internet DJ are confident that Cold Fusion can still save the world, and that we are closer than ever to the Holy Grail of civilization. They’re the Believers.
Here is a trailer for the movie:
I will add more to this post as news develops.
