"...Among the greatest documentaries ever, Jon Else's Oscar-nominated THE DAY AFTER TRINITY conveys a magnificent sense of what developers of the A-bomb thought of the so-called 'device' at the time..."
Haunting examination of the dawn of the nuclear age focuses on the dramatic events surrounding the development of the first atomic bomb. Featuring interviews with scientists and soldiers, and rare, archival footage, it provides a gripping profile of J.
