 An immersive multimedia exploration of our fascination with nuclear weapons – the deadliest machines ever made.

The film’s visuals are projected onscreen before the audience as electro-rock group The Acid – a supergroup comprised of producer-performer polymaths Adam Freeland, Steve Nalepa, RY X and Jens Kuross – perform an original score composed for the film.

Directed by Kevin Ford, Smriti Keshari and Eric Schlosser, with art direction by Radiohead collaborator Stanley Donwood and animation by Sydney’s own The Kingdom of Ludd, the bomb puts viewers in the centre of an urgent story about nuclear weapons. It’s a disturbing multimedia installation sitting at the intersection of art, politics, and technology.

“A surreal music video about the end of the world” Indiewire

“★★★★★ At a time when the Doomsday clock is the closest it’s been to midnight in the past 30-plus years, this live documentary multimedia experience could not be coming at a more pertinent time” The Upcoming
