Honor the First Anniversary of UN Treaty on Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons

Screening of “Original Child Bomb” – a meditation on the delusion of nuclear weapon utility.
2004, 57 minutes.
Event: Wednesday January 26, 2022 at 6-8 pm.

2004 documentary, named for a Thomas Merton poem, reviews the atom bomb history of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. Film contains historical and contemporary footage of reactions to the bombing including footage of the photographer in 1945. The US is the only war-time user of nukes to date, and now is one of nine nations with known nuclear weapons. Deterrence, the US strategy, has brought this nuclear proliferation. Now the majority of the globe demands nuclear abolition!
