Epicentre Movie Poster

Did you know that the US is spending more money on nuclear weapons research today than it did during the Cold War? Epicentre is a cultural history of the nuclear weapons program. From Hiroshima through to the present day, we hear from those who made the bombs and controlled their use.

Their perspectives are contrasted with those of historians, anthropologists, and most importantly the victims and downwinders who lived under the threat of the mushroom cloud. And finally, we are shown why nuclear weapons are an important and worrying issue today.
