Nuclear Future shines a light on how one individual’s actions can effect catastrophe for the whole planet.
Astrid’s life is like many others. She dresses her child, she spills her coffee, she catches the bus to work. But her work brings Astrid and the audience into contact with the world’s most dangerous weapons. In one moment they can change our lives forever.
What happens the next time we launch a nuclear attack? Can we afford to pretend these weapons don’t exist?
“Breathtaking in its scope, illuminating and horrifying… a stark warning and a bittersweet promise that we still have hope” – NARC Magazine
