Bay area premiere of Academy-award winner Lawrence ("An Inconvenient Truth") Bender's documentary on history of and current possibilities eliminating nuclear weapons. 

Sponsored by AFSC, with support of Ploughshares Fund

COUNTDOWN TO ZERO traces the history of the atomic bomb from its origins to the present state of global affairs: nine nations possess nuclear weapons capabilities with others racing to join them, with the world held in a delicate balance that could be shattered by an act of terrorism, failed diplomacy, or a simple accident. Written and directed by acclaimed documentarian Lucy Walker (Devil’s Playground, Blindsight), the film features an array of important international statesmen, including Jimmy Carter, Mikhail Gorbachev, Pervez Musharraf and Tony Blair.
