Conscientious Projector’s Film Series for the 99% presents The Day after Trinity: Oppenheimer and the Atomic Bomb. “I have become Death” declared nuclear scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer upon first witnessing the terrible power of the Atomic Bomb.
This Oscar -nominated film for best documentary uses newsreel footage and recently declassified government film to trace the Manhattan project under Oppenheimer’s guidance. The New Mexico A-Bomb tests are shown as well as the aftermath of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings. The final part traces Oppenheimer’s journey as the “Father of the A-Bomb” to a tireless opponent of nuclear power and ironically a “national security threat.”
We will have a speaker discussing Abolition 2000 discussing the solutions, the moral issues and the long term effects of living in the nuclear age which has affected “everything save our way of thinking.”
