Description


Nuclear disarmament activists, including Catholic nuns and priests, challenge the security and legality of America’s nuclear weapons when they break into two top-secret facilities: the “Fort Knox” of uranium and a Trident nuclear submarine base. Are they criminals or prophets sending a wake-up call to the world?

More than 25 years after the end of the end of the Cold War nuclear weapons are once again at the center of world attention. The ongoing North Korean crisis coupled with the uncertain future of the Iran nuclear deal have heightened tensions surrounding the world’s 15,000 nuclear weapons. This documentary profiles people on the frontlines of the global movement to abolish nuclear weapons, and chronicles diplomatic efforts at the United Nations to prohibit the use or threat of use of these weapons of mass destruction. As talk of nuclear war escalates daily, it is a must-see.

Q & A following the screening with:

Sister Megan Rice, Catholic nun/Activist

Helen Young, Filmmaker/Emmy award-winning Producer

Martin Fleck, Security Program Director, Physicians for Social Responsiblity.

Moderated by William Hartung, Director of the Arms and Security Project, Center for International Policy
