Pandora's Promise

A film about the history and future of nuclear power, Pandora’s Promise explores how and why mankind’s most feared and controversial technological discovery is now passionately embraced by many of those who once led the charge against it. Presenting as history, cultural meditation and contemporary exploration, the film aims to inspire a serious and realistic debate over what is without question the most important question of our time: how do we continue to power modern civilization without destroying it?  Pandora’s Promise asks whether the one technology we fear most could save our planet from a climate catastrophe, while providing the energy needed to lift billions of people in the developing world out of poverty. In this film that has sparked controversy among environmentalists, director Robert Stone tells the intensely personal stories of environmentalists and energy experts who have undergone a conversion from being fiercely anti- to strongly pro-nuclear energy.

These films are organized by the FHFF as an ongoing fundraiser for the Friday Harbor Film Festival.   

Running time:  1 hour 29 minutes.

San Juan Community Theatre, 100 2nd St., Friday Harbor

This very special screening of the documentary Shining Night, A Portrait of Composer Morten Lauridsen showcases the life and music of a San Juan Island resident who is considered one of the greatest living composers. And making the evening even more special, members of the Northwest Repertory Singers will be on stage to share some of Morten’s compelling choral compositions. 

The composer, who recently moved to San Juan Island after living on Waldron Island for years, is America’s most frequently performed choral composer and a National Medal of Arts recipient. Musicologist Nick Strimple describes him as “the only American composer in history who can be called a mystic.”Shining Night , a film by Michael Stillwater, explores the relationship of art, nature and spirituality, revealing the composer through the lenses of his love for silence and solitude with his passion for music and literature. Islanders who attended last fall’s Friday Harbor Film Festival will remember that the film received the coveted “Audience Favorite” award.

The market also features freshly cooked and prepared foods made from local ingredients, grass-fed burgers, hot sausages, baked goods, pizza, crafts, and more!

The market is held year-round at Brickworks, in downtown Friday Harbor on Nichols Street. High season hours (July 4 – Labor Day) are 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Low season hours are 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. The market takes place each Saturday from mid-April through October both inside and outside of Brickworks.
