As global concern mounts over a resumption of the nuclear arms race and even the potential use of these ultimate weapons of mass destruction, producer-director Robert E. Frye’s illuminating 2016 documentary provides a timely, comprehensive history and up-to-date account of nuclear weapons in our world today and their geopolitical implications. Frye, a former ABC News executive producer, gathered a diverse array of over three dozen top international security experts, diplomats, academics and disarmament activists for this presentation of The Nuclear World Project. The witnesses’ cogent observations and insights are beautifully accented by the contemplative, eponymously-titled score of composer/pianist Alain Kremski.
A community discussion follows the film, facilitated by Marty Coleman, Conscientious Projector cofounder and Outreach Director of the Interfaith Center to Reverse the Arms Race (originated at All Saints Church in the ‘80’s). The Armory is located at 145 N. Raymond in Old Pasadena. Admission is free and the facility is accessible to disabled persons.
