Working for a world without nuclear weapons


WAND has been hard at work all spring and summer to ratify New START and work toward a more secure future without nuclear weapons. This summer, Countdown To Zero will premier at theatres throughout the country. Join WAND in viewing this movie and supporting the nuclear disarmament movement. If the initial release for Countdown To Zero is successful, there is hope of a wide release, which will only help to spread WAND's message.
COUNTDOWN TO ZERO traces the history of the atomic bomb from its origins to the present state of global affairs: nine nations possess nuclear weapons capabilities with others racing to join them, with the world held in a delicate balance that could be shattered by an act of terrorism, failed diplomacy, or a simple accident. Written and directed by acclaimed documentarian Lucy Walker (The Devil's Playground, Blindsight), the film features an array of important international statesmen, including Jimmy Carter, Mikhail Gorbachev, Pervez Musharraf and Tony Blair. Countdown to Zero makes a compelling case for worldwide nuclear disarmament, an issue more topical than ever with the Obama administration working to revive this goal today.
