The award-winning documentary showing the history of the anti-nuclear movement

The Beginning of the End of Nuclear Weapons

A film of global proportions.

A thrilling documentary that highlights the triumphs of the global anti-nuclear movement is coming to Melbourne later this month.

Directed by Spain’s Alvaro Orus, The Beginning of the End of Nuclear Weapons tells the story of how the United Nations Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons came to be. Viewers will also be treated to a brief history of anti-nuclear activism, a look at where the movement is going from here and the role of the Nobel Peace Prize-winning International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons.

Interviews with fourteen subjects have been interweaved throughout the documentary, including conversations with members from ICAN, the Red Cross and the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War. For its captivating storytelling, the documentary won an award of merit from the Accolade Global Film Competition.

The Beginning of the End of Nuclear Weapons will be screened at RMIT Cinema on Tuesday October 15 at 7.30pm. For more info, head to the documentary website.
