The Atom: A Love Affair

13/07/2023 - 18:00

The Allerdale GDF Community Partnership is hosting a free screening of a documentary film about the roller coaster ride nuclear power has had since the fifities and uses the back drop of a typical love affair with its ebbs and flows. This will follow its public meeting on Thursday 13th July at Parkway Cinema, Dunmail Park.

Written and directed by Vicki Lesley and narrated by Lily Cole, ‘The Atom: A Love Affair’ is a documentary shedding new light on the present and future of nuclear power by delving deep into the story of its past.

The film reveals the West’s rollercoaster love-hate relationship with nuclear power since the end of World War 2 and hears first hand from the scientists, engineers, politicians and campaigners who have navigated the complex passions and political imperatives of the Twentieth Century’s most controversial energy source.

The agenda for the public meeting will be a short presentation to enable an update on Community Partnership business and will include an opportunity for questions from the public before the film starts.

As there will be a buffet we are requesting that you register for catering arrangements.
