This Summer our film Atomic is touring the world with the live score accompaniment from M0gwai. The tour will include dates at the Edinburgh Festival, The Barbican and a special screening at Hiroshima.

Created to mark the seventy years since the bombing of Hiroshima showed the appalling destructive power of the atomic bomb. Mark Cousins’s bold documentary looks at death in the atomic age, but life too. Using only archive film and a new musical score by the band Mogwai, the film shows us an impressionistic kaleidoscope of our nuclear times – protest marches, Cold War sabre-rattling, Chernobyl and Fukishima – but also the sublime beauty of the atomic world, and how x-rays and MRI scans have improved human lives. The nuclear age has been a nightmare, but dreamlike too.
