Having brought you our review of the fascinating but troubling nuclear weapons documentary Countdown to Zero and an exclusive interview with Oscar-winning producer Lawrence Bender, we now have an additional video to add to our coverage so far.

In this video which has been conducted and given to us by our friends at Upbeat, the writer and producer Lucy Walker talks about some of the themes and emphases of the documentary, interspersed with clips from the film itself that give a helpful indication of some of what it covers.

Although Countdown to Zero will no doubt struggle to find a extensive nationwide release falling as it does amidst the summer blockbuster season, it deserves to be seen and I would encourage you to track it down.

 

Dave has been writing for HeyUGuys since mid-2010 and has found them to be the most intelligent, erudite and insightful bunch of film fans you could hope to work with. He's gone from ham-fisted attempts at writing the news to interviewing Lawrence Bender, Renny Harlin and Julian Glover, to writing articles about things he loves that people have actually read. He has fairly broad tastes as far as films are concerned, though given the choice he's likely to go for Con Air over Battleship Potemkin most days.
