Gimme Some Truth: Bell Media Hot Docs Showcase: Let There Be Light

Sat, Nov 4 / 4 pm
Directed by Mila Aung-Thwin & Van Royko
2017, 80 min, Canada
Manitoba Premiere

Nuclear fusion – the ultimate source of energy in the universe – has been the holy grail of renewable energy for decades. Now, 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.

Plays with House of the Rising Sun / Dir. Aaron Zeghers, 2017, Canada, 15 min / At the age of 74, Norma MacDonald began building a passive solar home north of Portage la Prairie, Manitoba. Nearly 50 years later, sustainable design techniques are once again becoming popular as humanity faces full-on the devastating effects of carbon-based climate change.  Norma’s great-grandson picks up the camera in an effort to bring to light not only her accomplishments and but also those of many other pioneers of the environmental movement in Manitoba.

Presented in partnership with the Bell Media Hot Docs Showcase.
