The life and work of Joseph Rotblat is explored in the new NFB documentary The Strangest Dream. And while the film looks at Rotblat’s extraordinary past, it also provokes questions for modern society and about our future. To dig deeper into these questions, panel discussions were held following a series of cross-Canada screenings, featuring some of Canada’s - and the world’s - leading experts on nuclear disarmament and the non-proliferation movement, including Walter Dorn, Sergei Plekhanov and Douglas Roche.
To push debate and awareness of the ongoing threat of nuclear weapons further, we filmed the discussions and produced a 5-episode podcast available on the site for viewing, sharing and commenting. Ranging from the life of Joseph Rotblat, to the contemporary threat of nuclear bombs, to what a Barack Obama presidency may mean for nuclear proliferation, the pieces cover the gamut of issues facing the non-proliferation movement today. You can watch - and download - them all at http://citizen.nfb.ca/strangest-dream.
