The New Fire
English/2017/Independent Documentary/84 minutes
Film by David Schumacher
Nuclear power has been vilified in popular culture and among much of the environmental community. Yet the next-generation
reactors currently in development may actually be key to avoiding global catastrophe. The young entrepreneurs heading this
energy revolution realize they’re up against more than the climate clock – they need to convince all of us that the new nuclear is
safe and achievable.
The New Fire is an independent documentary that introduces audiences to young nuclear engineers who are developing nextgeneration
reactors which they hope will provide clean and safe solutions to the world’s future energy needs. With unprecedented
access to key people, places, and events, Emmy-winning director David Schumacher’s film focuses on how the generation facing the
most severe impact of climate change is fighting back with ingenuity and hope. The New Fire tells a provocative and startlingly
positive story about a planet in crisis and the young heroes who are trying to save it." Good Docs
