Drawing from the popularity of the film Oppenheimer, beginning on October 18, the Franciscan Peace Center will be partnering with the Clinton Public Library to present the Nuclear Weapons Education & Film Series.


The first film that will be shown during this series is The Atomic Café. Produced in 1982, the film focuses on how the United States military utilized public service announcements about nuclear weapons, the threat of nuclear war, and the Cold War of the mid to late 20th century as propaganda to diminish the threat of globalized nuclear war.


This program will be held at the new, third floor community space at the main branch of the Clinton Public Library. The main branch is located at 306 8th Ave S, Clinton. The screening will begin at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 18. A community discussion will follow.
