Program Abstract: Renowned special effects filmmaker Peter Kuran (Star Wars, Star Trek II & V, Robocop, Addams Family) dedicated over three years to the production of this groundbreaking film that chronicles the top-secret, strange and visually compelling history of the design, production, and testing of Atomic and Hydrogen bombs by the United States. In addition to uncovering rare film from top-secret government archives, Kuran traveled far and wide to obtain startling footage of nuclear tests conducted by China, plus the largest atomic explosion ever detonated by Russia. Features remarkable image quality which required the development of a new Academy Award-winning film restoration process to preserve these haunting images for generations to come.
