Willard Straight Theatre
9/7: intro by Judith Reppy (STS, CU)
1982 > USA > Directed by Kevin Rafferty, Jayne Loader, Pierce Rafferty
One of the defining documentaries of the 20th century, The Atomic Cafe offers a darkly humorous glimpse into mid-century America, an era rife with paranoia, anxiety, and misapprehension. Whimsical and yet razor-sharp, this timeless classic illuminates the often comic paradoxes of life in the Atomic Age, while also exhibiting a genuine nostalgia for an earlier and more innocent nation. Shown in a recent digital restoration. Cosponsored with the Judith Reppy Institute for Peace & Conflict Studies. More at kinolorber.com/film/theatomiccafe
