WGBH First Look: Command and Control

From the director of Food Inc., Command and Control tells the hidden story of a deadly accident in 1980 at a nuclear missile complex in Arkansas. Fashioned as a thriller, the film exposes the terrifying truth about the management of America’s nuclear arsenal, and what can happen when the weapons built to protect us threaten to destroy us. Co-Presented with First Look, WGBH’s premier showings of its highly acclaimed new films.
