Atomic - Living in Dread


Over 70 years ago the bombing of Hiroshima showed the appalling destructive power of the atomic bomb. This documentary, directed by Mark Cousins with a soundtrack by Mogwai uses only archive film to look at the atomic age - from protest marches, Cold War sabre rattling to Chernobyl and Fukishima. It also looks at the sublime beauty of the atomic world and how X rays and MRI scans have improved human lives. The nuclear age has a nightmare but dreamlike too. View the trailer here.

Benchmark 6

A fictional documentary directed by David Newbigging about a possible nuclear accident on the Clyde, following a family caught up in events. On the 18th August 2020, the people of the lower Clyde estuary woke to find HMS Vengeance adrift and on fire in the middle of the river. The submarine had hit a fishing vessel at the mouth of the Clyde and was attempting to limp back to it's berth at Her Majesty's Naval Base Clyde. What happened next is the biggest nuclear disaster in human history. 

This screening marks the 60th anniversary of the founding of CND and is a fundraiser for Scottish CND who will be present for a Q&A. This event was organised with Peace Education Scotland.
