Bound by the Wind
David L. Brown, 1992, 88 min., video
Featuring celebrated scientist and Avedon subject Linus Pauling, a Nobel laureate for chemistry and recipient of the 1962 Nobel Peace Prize for his antinuclear activism, Bound by the Wind tracks the long international movement to institute a nuclear test ban treaty. Originally distributed as an activist piece for test-ban organizers in the 1990s, the documentary highlights global and local communities that continue to suffer the effects of being downwind of these world-changing experiments.
Part of Richard Avedon: Notes on "Nothing Personal".
$5 general; free for SFMOMA members or with museum admission (requires a free ticket, which can be picked up in the Haas Atrium). Double features: films offered on the same date are included in one ticket.
