A stunning look at the world's most pressing problems through the eyes of Nobel laureates, Nobelity follows filmmaker Turk Pipkin's personal journey to find enlightening 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 Nobelists with a first-person view of world problems and the children who are most challenged by them.
"Nobelity is an outstanding documentary. Its quality and insights will guarantee it a lengthy life on shelves. You won't find more effort, better execution or more heartfelt reasoning in a world-affairs documentary than in Nobelity. Even the cinematography is alive with the project's spirit, invoking the living soul of each new setting."
