ABOUT THE FILM

ABOUT THE FILM

Nearly everyone has an opinion about nuclear power but far fewer know its history and the complex social and political forces that have shaped it. Unlike so many other documentaries about nuclear power, 'The Atom: A Love Affair' does not try to argue one side of the debate or the other.

A sweeping story of technological obsession, political imperatives and powerful, conflicting passions, 'The Atom: A Love Affair' is a documentary shedding new light on the present and future of nuclear power by delving deep into the story of its past.

An ambitious international feature documentary revealing the West's rollercoaster love-hate relationship with nuclear power since the end of World War 2. In a dramatic tale of belief, betrayal, intrigue and hope, the film hears first hand from the scientists, engineers, politicians and campaigners who have navigated the complex passions and political imperatives of the Twentieth Century's most controversial energy source.
