Abstract

Documentary. Co-director, producer, editor.

A documentary about two scientists in 1989 who thought they had discovered cold fusion, a cheap, limitless energy source that would solve all the world’s problems. First hailed as heroes, within three months they were driven from the country in disgrace, their careers in tatters. Twenty years later, underground scientists still pursue the idea, desperate for the discovery that will prove the naysayers wrong.
