Excerpt:

I spoke with the directors, Clayton Brown and Monica Ross, about the film and learned that they, as artists (they both have MFAs from Northwestern University) wanted to go beyond what is typically done in documentaries, meaning they wanted to do much more than to have the audience leave merely knowing what cold fusion is and why it should or shouldn’t work. They wanted to reveal the humaness of science and scientists, to tell non-fiction stories rather than simply educate.

Allowing the scientists be characters, full of human drama and struggle, is what sets Chicago-based 137 Films productions apart from the shows that NOVA or the BBC produces. They want to promote science literacy through great story telling in a character-driven story.
