Film Showing/Discussion: “The Atomic Café”
October 5, 2017 @ 7:00 pm
A showing of The Atomic Café (1982) will be co-hosted by the Wilmington College Peace Resource Center. This darkly humorous documentary consists of archival footage about nuclear warfare. Drawing largely on government propaganda and training films for American soldiers, the movie, presented in collage form, features clips from early in the Cold War era that are filled with alarming misinformation.
Dr. Tanya Maus, Director of the Peace Resource Center, will lead a discussion following the film, drawing not only on the history of the Peace Resource Center itself, but also on her background in East Asian history.
