Curie, Einstein, Hiroshima, the Cold War, the Cuban Missile Crisis, protest, medical research, Chernobyl, MRI scans, Fukushima. Using only archive footage - news reports, cosmic imagery, x-ray photography, astronaut training films and the like -  Mark Cousins' acclaimed film captures the dreams and nightmares of the atomic age, enhanced by a haunting and (at-times) thundering score by Mogwai.

Special screenings to commemorate the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on 6 August 1945.
