Description

Long before An Inconvenient Truth, Terre Nash filmed an American activist's powerful lecture on the horrors of nuclear war and proliferation, cut with newsreel footage of the atomic bombings at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Reagan administration labelled this short as propaganda and attempted to have it banned, but instead it won an Oscar. Kiva Reardon
