Our Guest Speaker this year was Robert Stone, Director of the feature film "Pandora's Promise." He is a multi-award winning, Oscar-nominated and Emmy-nominated documentary filmmaker.

Born in England, he grew up in both Europe and America. After graduating with a degree in history from University of Wisconsin-Madison, he moved to New York City to pursue a career in filmmaking. His first film, "Radio Bikini", was premiered at Sundance and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Feature Documentary.

Multi-tasking as a producer, director, writer, editor, and cameraman, he has developed a steady international reputation with a range of unique and critically acclaimed feature-documentaries about American history, pop culture, the mass media, and the environment. His best-known works include "Guerilla: The Taking of Patty Hearst", "Oswald's Ghost", "Earth Days", and most recently, "Pandora's Promise". This film premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and won the prestigious Green Award at the Sheffield Documentary Film Festival.

"Pandora's Promise" is now available in its entirety on Netflix and iTunes.

Other highlights of the Teller Lecture and Dinner included the presentation of the 2014 Fred C. Davison Distinguished Scientist Award and the 2014 Robert Maher Memorial Scholarship.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank all of our many sponsors, our CNTA membership, and supporters of the 2014 lecture.
