“Planet Power”, Newest Giant Screen Film from nWave, Holds World Premiere at Smithsonian


The newest giant screen film from N3D LAND Films and nWave Pictures DistributionPlanet Power, held its world premiere at Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum Lockheed Martin IMAX Theater March 22. Exploring the history of electricity, the film looks back at scientists who changed the world, like Faraday, Franklin, Edison, and Tesla. The film also takes a glimpse into the future, following the journey of modern-day adventurers Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg, the inspirational team behind the record-breaking Solar Impulse, as they pilot the first plane capable of perpetual flight, powered only by the sun.

By harnessing abundant renewable natural resources and applying innovative new technologies, the next generation of scientists and adventurers are working to create a sustainable and cleaner energy future.
