Atomic – Living in Dread and Promise


Bedford Film Festival, in partnership with Sprint Convergence Ltd, presents a special documentary by Mark Cousins that looks at the legacy of the Hiroshima bomb dropped during World War 2.

The moment brought the world into the atomic age and with it a life of dread from the cold war, but also a life of promise as nuclear power promised to solve humanity’s need for energy and technological advancement.

Told through clips from public information films, Atomic gives us an insight into the paradox of the nuclear age, made all the more haunting by a sountrack from Mogwai.
