Since its first use in 1945, the atomic bomb has become as horrific as it is fascinating, resurfacing today to make the headlines worldwide. Skilfully and impressively edited, often using previously unpublished archive images, The Bomb goes back over the past 70 years, in an outstanding experience where the main character – The Bomb – surprises us by its ability to seduce as much as to terrify. Shown in virtual reality, Collisions takes us to the heart of Australian desert and features the improbable encounter between Aboriginals and the Western World, through the British nuclear tests. Gathering the filmmakers and a researcher specialised in the nuclear issue promises, the panel discussion promises to be exciting.
