Join us with producer/director Stuart Overbey for the screening of his new independent documentary entitled "The Forgotten Bomb".

The Forgotten Bomb examines the political and legal implications of nuclear weapons, but also digs deeper into the cultural and psychological reasons behind the arsenal's existence. Bud Ryan's quest takes us from the homes of hibakusha (A-bomb survivors) in Japan, to an abandoned uranium mine in New Mexico, to an underground Titan missile silo in Arizona. From these places, and many others, Ryan puts together the pieces of a puzzle that explain why we have the bomb, and how we might finally do away with it.

Through interviews with atomic scientists, politicians, authors, statesmen, and atomic bomb survivors, The Forgotten Bomb examines what The Bomb means to us all, and why we need to think about it again, now, even though the Cold War is long over.

Stuart Overbey will be here to introduce his film and answer questions.
