The Environmental Film Festival will shine in Canberra on October 18, with a screening of Let There Be Light. The library will host pre-drinks before the screening, and director Mila Aung-Thwin will be in attendance for a panel after the film.

Is it possible to create an artificial sun? The race to find fossil-free energy sources has never been more intense, as many physicists and scientists speculate that this may be the only hope for future life on Earth.

Let There Be Light tells the incredible story of the most complex machine ever invented: the ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor), currently being built out of a million pieces in the south of France. The stakes are high as this project stands to either solve our energy problems or be the most expensive failure in history.

Meanwhile, set against the monstrous scale of this project and its science fiction–like qualities, maverick engineers in improvised laboratories also hustle to achieve the same results for a fraction of the cost. Told with eye-opening clarity, by many of the colourful inventors working in fusion today, Let There Be Light traverses fusion’s 60-year history of defiance and invention.

It is the rare documentary that tackles the its issues, not with an alarmist tone but with a realistic and inspiring assessment of the challenges necessary for us to escape our fate and to reach for the future.
