IR Program Movie Night—Countdown to Zero

Wednesday, March 16, 2022 - 5:15pm

Claudia Cohen Hall 402

Countdown to Zero is a documentary film by Director Lucy Walker.  The film traces the history of the atomic bomb from its origins to the present state of affairs—nine nations possessing nuclear weapons capabilities with others racing to join the nuclear club.  The world is in a delicate balance that could be upended by an accident, failure of diplomacy, or an act of terrorism.  The film is particularly relevant given the recent events in the Ukraine.

After the film screening, there will be a discussion lead by Dr. Tomoharu Nishino and Dr. Farah Jan of the IR Program.

University of Pennsylvania students, staff, and faculty may participate in this event in person.  All current university guidelines for indoor events must be followed.
