The Atomic Cafe - New Restoration! // Films Changing the World
Films Changing the World: Must-see docs revealing staggering new perspectives and stories.
"Viewed from a safe distance, the atomic bomb is one of the most beautiful sights ever seen by man." Over thirty years after its initial release, this 1982 cult classic is back in a sparkling 4K digital restoration. Pieced together from government propaganda, newsreels, training films, and advertisements, the film weaves a darkly funny tapestry of Cold War American culture at the dawn of the Nuclear era. Cheerily instructing us on how to stop worrying and love the bomb, The Atomic Cafe is a chilling and often-hilarious reminder of Atomic Age paranoia, made eerily relevant in our current age of fake news.
Preceded by The Hole in Reservoir Hill, a short documentary about the secrets behind a decommissioned nuclear bunker buried deep beneath North Bay, Ontario.
