About the film:
The Bomb explores the immense power of nuclear weapons, the perverse appeal they have, and the profound death wish at the very heart of them.

The 61-minute film takes viewers through the strange, compelling, and unsettling reality of nuclear weapons today.

The Bomb combines archival footage, animation, music, and text. It immerses the audience in the cultural and technological realm of nuclear weapons. It is big, visceral, non-linear, and seemingly inescapable.

Hosted by the Outrider Foundation. Co-sponsored by the Holtz Center for Science and Technology Studies. RSVP on Facebook.
