This documentary tells one of the most crucial stories of our time on the continuing challenges and struggles dealing with nuclear weapons and fissile materials around the world.
The production began in February 2008 with filming in Norway and Iceland, continuing throughout the year traveling to other locations in Europe, Japan and the United States. The story told is about the sixty five year struggle to find solutions on how to dispose of and reduce the number of nuclear weapons in the world. The story is told through vignettes filmed over the course of three years, drawing on voices going back to the creation of the nuclear weapon sixty-five years ago. These narrative voices are woven together with original and archival footage. The documentary was released in September 2011 and is an official selection in The Global Peace Film Festival.
