Feted earlier this year at Sundance before its international premiere at Cannes, where it screened in Official Selection, let the Countdown begin. Countdown to Zero reveals the truth behind an issue on which human survival itself hangs – the very real possibility of nuclear disaster. From the producers of An Inconvenient Truth, Countdown is a chilling wakeup call about the urgency of the nuclear threat. The film looks at the nuclear arms race and exposes a slew of present day threats with insights from political figures Jimmy Carter, Tony Blair, Mikhail Gorbachev and Valerie Plame Wilson, former CIA operations officer. Gary Oldman narrates.
