When assessing almost any aspect of our current human existence, one question remains impossible to turn away from: Is this the kind of world we want to leave for our children? Nobelity is the search for a path to a better future, with nine Nobel laureates as our guides. An entirely original look at the world’s most pressing problems through the eyes of nine of the world’s greatest minds, Nobelity follows filmmaker Turk Pipkin on a personal journey in search of answers about the kind of world our children and grandchildren will know.
Filmed across the U.S., and in France, England, India, and Africa, Nobelity combines the insights of nine distinguished Nobel Prize-winners with a first-person view of world problems and the children who are most challenged by them. Featured Nobel Laureates include Steven Weinberg, Jody Williams, Ahmed Zewail, Rick Smalley, Wangari Maathai, Sir Joseph Rotblat, Dr. Harold Varmus, Desmond Tutu and Amartya Sen.
This film is part of Doc-Debut, a new regular series on Link TV highlighting unique and groundbreaking international documentary films. The series offers American audiences unprecedented perspectives on world events and culture, as seen through the eyes of individuals across the globe.
