Command and Control

From the director of the groundbreaking film FOOD INC., and the executive producer of the Oscar-nominated film LAST DAYS IN VIETNAM, comes COMMAND AND CONTROL, a high-stakes documentary thriller—based on Eric Schlosser's critically-acclaimed book of the same name—that explores the deadly "human error" that led to an accident at the Titan II missile complex in Damascus, Arkansas in 1980. The chilling new documentary explores the unlikely chain of events that caused the accident and the feverish efforts to prevent the explosion of a ballistic missile carrying the most powerful nuclear warhead ever built by the United States – a warhead 600 times more powerful than the bomb that destroyed Hiroshima. COMMAND AND CONTROL exposes the terrifying truth about the management of America’s nuclear arsenal, demonstrates what can happen when the weapons built to protect us threaten to destroy us, and probes how mutually assured destruction might actually mean self-annihilation.
