COUNTDOWN TO ZERO traces the history of the atomic bomb from its origins to the present state of global affairs: nine nations possess nuclear weapons capabilities with others racing to join them, with the world held in a delicate balance that could be shattered by an act of terrorism, failed diplomacy, or a simple accident. Written and directed by acclaimed documentarian Lucy Walker (Devil’s Playground, Blindsight), the film features an array of important international statesmen, including Jimmy Carter, Mikhail Gorbachev, Pervez Musharraf and Tony Blair. Countdown to Zero makes a compelling case for worldwide nuclear disarmament, an issue more topical than ever with the Obama administration working to revive this goal today. The film was produced by Academy Award® winner and 2009 nominee Lawrence Bender (Inglorious Bastards, An Inconvenient Truth) and developed, financed and executive produced by Participant Media, together with World Security Institute.

Countdown to Zero also features PSR’s own Dr. Ira Helfand describing the horrific consequences that a nuclear fallout would have in a major U.S. city. Dr. Helfand’s description will send chills down your spine and have you demanding zero nuclear weapons.
