Atomic Film Series: Dr. Strangelove
“Stanley Kubrick’s black comedy classic about an ‘accidental’ nuclear attack. Created during a time when the paranoia of the Cold War was at its peak, the film still seems surprisingly relevant today. Convinced the ‘Commies’ are polluting America’s ‘precious bodily fluids,’ a crazed General (Sterling Hayden) orders a surprise nuclear air strike on the USSR. His aide Captain Mandrake (Peter Sellers) furiously attempts to figure out a recall code to stop the bombing. Meanwhile, the U.S. president (Sellers again) gets on the hot line to figure how to convince the drunken Soviet premier that the impending attack is a silly mistake, while the president’s advisor (and ex Nazi scientist) Dr. Strangelove (Sellers once more) confirms the existence of the dreaded Doomsday Machine—a new secret Soviet retaliatory device guaranteed to end the human race once and for all!”
SPECIFIC LOCATION: Thalacker Conference Room, Wulsin Hall, Naropa University.
Wulsin Hall is on the northeast corner of the campus (newer building that is visible from Arapahoe). Thalacker is on the second floor. For parking, head south on 20th St. from Arapahoe, turn left on Marine St, and follow that all the way straight and it will dead end into a parking lot – the lot is not ticketed after 6pm.
The Atomic Film Series: On the fourth Thursday of every month there will be screening of a film relevant to Nuclear Guardianship. Please join us as we dive into the complex issues of the nuclear industry and spread awareness about the issues we face as a community living near to a contaminated, former Nuclear Weapons Facility, Rocky Flats.
