Film Screening: "The Strangest Dream"

Mar 8 2009 - 12:00pm

The Strangest Dream
A film about Nobel Peace Laureate Joseph Rotblat, Pugwash, and nuclear weapons.

The Strangest Dream tells the story of Joseph Rotblat, the history of nuclear weapons and the efforts of the Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs — which he co-founded — to halt nuclear proliferation. Nuclear physicist Joseph Rotblat was branded a traitor and spy after walking away from the Manhattan Project, builders of the first atomic bomb. But, with Bertrand Russell, he went on to help create the modern peace movement, and eventually to win the Nobel Peace Prize.

“This documentary is a worthy tribute to a heroic humanitarian and a powerful warning to us all to abolish nuclear weapons or face the ultimate
global warming – nuclear holocaust.” Senator Romeo Dallaire
