Countdown to Zero - Satellite Premiere (CERT)

Director: Lucy Walker Starring: various 136 mins

In 1995 former Russian president Boris Yeltsin saved the world from nuclear armageddon by simply being sober during a false alarm.

Despite the end of the Cold War, acclaimed documentary maker Lucy Walker (THE DEVILíS PLAYGROUND) presents a chilling argument: that our risk of nuclear annihilation has risen not fallen.

COUNTDOWN TO ZERO traces the history of the atomic bomb from its origins to the present global politics.

Today nine nations possess nuclear weapons capabilities with others racing to join them.

The world holds in a delicate balance that could be shattered at any minute by an act of terrorism, failed diplomacy, or a simple accident.

Featuring key international statesmen, such as Jimmy Carter, Mikhail Gorbachev, Pervez Musharraf and Tony Blair, the film makes a compelling case for worldwide nuclear disarmament.
