The new film from
DIRK VAN DEN BERG & PASCAL VERROUST
They are the greatest threats to mankind.
They jeopardize our civilisation.
And they are all man-made.
Since its foundation in 1945 by Albert Einstein, Robert Oppenheimer
and many of the Manhattan Project scientists,
The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists
warns on all these threats simultaneously.
Every year the Doomsday Clock shows
how close we are to our own annihilation.
And in 2023 the clock was set at 90 seconds to midnight.
Closer than ever before.
This film narrates how humanity got to the brink of self-destruction,
with previously unseen archive footage and unprecedented access
to the Bulletin and its members.
This film investigates the actionable solutions
that can prevent it from happening,
with the help of world-renowned scientists and experts.
This film asks if the Bulletin's original mission
"to inform, warn and awaken the public"
and "to forge awareness in the leaders of the world"
can still lay the bases of our democratic societies.
With this film, we thread the historic past
follow its ripples to our present
and future world.
And we dedicate this film to a new generation
that is fed up of "all the bla-bla"
and demands action.
