One of the most essential and urgent documentaries in years, Countdown to Zero poses the most unsettling and burning of questions: with the world’s collective nuclear arsenal at an all-time high, and with terrorism an ever-present global threat, just how close are we to pushing the button and going beyond the point of no return?

\r\n

It’s a daunting question, but Oscar-nominated director Lucy Walker (Waste Land) approaches it in a collected and intelligent fashion, speaking to the world’s most established authorities on nuclear weapons and materials, and high-profile players such as Tony Blair, Mikhail Gorbachev and former US Defense Secretary Robert McNamara. Our fate is still in our hands, but with the clock ticking, Countdown to Zero must be the first step towards action against nuclear war.
