Screening of a new Film of the Cold Fusion Case..February 11th, 2012

A Chicago event worth attending....

137 Films in association with The Chicago Council on Science and Technology Present
‘a-work-in-progress' screening of
The Believers
Saturday, February 11, 2012

The Believers tells the strange story of Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons, chronologically documenting the summer of 1989 as well as new developments today. The tale includes mystery, scandal, personal tragedy, and scientific wonder.

Understanding of events shifts depending on who is telling the story. A mixture of interviews, vérité footage, archival media, scientific animation, and reenactments will compliment interviews with scientists, journalists, politicians, and officials. Woven together, they paint a vivid, often contradicting account of what happened.
