UK Premiere of Countdown to Zero
From the makers of An Inconvenient Truth, comes a film about our nuclear threat. Get ready for the most important film of the year and join audiences across the UK and Ireland taking part in Demand Zero Day, June 21st.
This nationwide premiere will see Lucy Walker’s Countdown to Zero screened simultaneously across the UK and Ireland before venues link up live to BAFTA for a panel discussion with special guests Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan, Margaret Beckett (Former Foreign Secretary), Lawrence Bender (Quentin Tarantino’s producer) and ex-CIA operative Valerie Plame-Wilson. All audiences are encouraged to make the most of this high-profile panel by texting in their questions to the panel.
“This could be the horror film of the year, or perhaps the decade.”
– Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
“Unquestionably the most important film you’ll see this year.”
– James Mottram, Moviescope

Nine nations possess nuclear weapons capabilities with others racing to join them. The world is now held in a delicate balance that could be shattered by an act of terrorism, failed diplomacy, or a simple accident. Written and directed by Academy Award® nominated documentarian Lucy Walker (Waste Land), Countdown to Zero traces the history of the atomic bomb from its origins to the present state of global affairs. It makes a compelling case for worldwide nuclear disarmament and features an array of important international statesmen, including Jimmy Carter, Mikhail Gorbachev, and Pervez Musharraf.
