the bombcreated by Smriti Keshari and Eric Schlosser, is a groundbreaking multimedia installation that immerses you in the strange, compelling, and unsettling reality of nuclear weapons.  The 55-minute film will be projected 360 degrees on massive floor to ceiling screens that surround the audience, as The Acid performs a live score in the center of the space.

the bomb will be performed on April 23 and 24 at Gotham Hall as part of the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival, with shows at 7pm and 10pm both evenings. Tickets are available at www.Tribecafilm.com/festival.  Also, on April 23, at the School of Visual Arts, the project’s creators and Michael Douglas, the Oscar-winning actor and non-proliferation advocate, will discuss how the less we talk about nuclear weapons, the more dangerous they become.  The Tribeca Talk featuring Keshari, Schlosser, and Douglas starts at 5 pm. 

“Half the population of the U.S. were not yet born or were children when the Cold War ended, so there is a profound lack of knowledge about nuclear weapons,” said Schlosser. “There are more than 15,000 of these weapons in the world right now, buried underground and out of sight.  The danger never went away; the awareness of it did.  We hope the bomb will introduce a new generation to the threat posed by nuclear weapons – a threat as urgent and existential as the one posed by climate change, but which gets little if any attention.”
