Full Charge poster“I am now convinced that an IMAX 3D film is an innovative and very entertaining way of storytelling, and I am sure it is the medium that best matches the importance and greatness of what we are trying to accomplish,” stated Bertrand Piccard, Initiator and President of the Solar Impulse project.

Catherine Vuong, N3D LAND CEO and producer, says, “We are thrilled to have signed with nWave Pictures Distribution, a company that shares not only our love of the big screen but also our ambition to reach, entertain and educate audiences of all generations.”

“While the human adventure is enthralling and captivating, it’s not that simple to make environmental issues – and, in particular, renewable energies – exciting and thrilling for an all-age audience,” says director Pascal Vuong. “With this film, Ronan Chapalain and I are exploring new and immersive ways to educate family audiences on energy issues. Above all, we aim to inspire them to action by examining some of the truly innovative technological solutions being developed throughout the world in the race to reduce global warming and to preserve our future on earth. ‘To both teach and entertain’ was Jules Verne’s motto. It is definitely ours now at N3D LAND.”
