The Bomb

USA 2016 | 55 minutes | English | Hebrew subtitles

Seven decades have passed since an entire city was demolished by a nuclear weapon, but the danger is still a reality. In 2017, there are no less than nine countries possessing a total of approximately fifteen-thousand nuclear missiles. But it is not only a matter of quantity; most nuclear weapons in American hands are twenty times more powerful than the bomb that hit Hiroshima. This film takes viewers into the depths of the nuclear weapon story, from the Trinity test in 1945 to the present, by interweaving archival footage with an original score by the electronic ensemble, The Acid. The result is an intelligent film, a psychedelic journey into the disturbing nuclear regions of our time.
