USA, 2016, Digital, 92 min

Join author Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation, Food Inc.) for a screening and discussion around his latest work, COMMAND AND CONTROL. Hosted by AFS Artistic Director Richard Linklater. 

Based on Schlosser’s book about a little-known episode in America’s history, the film challenges us to imagine how close America has come to real nuclear disaster. In 1980, a minor repair in a missile silo set off a series of events that could have obliterated the citizenry of Little Rock, or at worst, the entire southern United States. In vivid detail, COMMAND AND CONTROL takes us minute by minute as a young and unprepared crew attempted to stop a nuclear detonation. 

Online tickets are no longer available. A limited quantity of tickets will be available at the door. 

Thanks to Hotel San José for their generous support.
