As current as it ever has been, THREADS supposes that nuclear war breaks out and examines the effect it has upon the citizens of Sheffield, England. Shot in a cinema verite style and pulling no punches, THREADS captures the harrowing experiences that could happen if the bomb is ever dropped. A far cry from “duck and cover” educational films, this is a chilling look at the wrath of atomic annihilation.
Screening takes place in the Spielberg room at the Egyptian Theatre.
