Powering America - Nuclear Energy Documentary

ColdWater Media invited Vidano Films (in partnership with The Heritage Foundation) to develop and direct a comprehensive long-form documentary on nuclear power.  For 6 months Vidano traveled through out the U.S., canada, and Europe, filming in nuclear power plants, a mine, and a recycling facility to learn the truth about nuclear energy.

Is nuclear energy safe? Can it really meet all of our energy needs? What is being done about waste? How effective IS nuclear energy? Powering America addresses these questions and more by pulling back the veil on nuclear energy and by following the men and women who work in America's nuclear power industry.



Last January I had the privilege of traveling to Israel with Rick Larson, whom I filmed the The Star of Bethlehem with. He asked me to direct a new project, called The Christ Quake, involving geophysical mysteries this time. (I can’t keep up with that guy.) Rick and a team of us were on the ground filming for 4 days.

We were able to take strata samples from what was the floor of the Dead Sea 2,000 years ago.  Because the Dead Sea has receded so much over the years we were able to walk down into canyons that are now exposed, and physically touch layers of undisturbed strata from 2,000, and even 4,000 years ago.

Our expedition to the Dead Sea was unforgettable.
