They remember seeing a flash so bright that it felt like they had x-ray vision. They remember watching the mushroom clouds rise into the nighttime sky, uniquely bright and colored from the blast. From 1945-1963, the United States tested more than 200 atomic weapons aboveground and underwater. Hundreds of thousands of soldiers took part in various capacities during these tests, and those still alive hold vivid and at times horrifying memories of the imagery and effects of nuclear explosions. Filmmaker Morgan Knibbe detailed the experiences of U.S. atomic veterans in his documentary The Atomic Soldiers, which has been featured by The New York Times and The Atlantic. Please join us as Morgan screens a 15-minute version of the documentary and discusses his current and future projects involving atomic veterans. Knibbe is a Dutch director and cinematographer known for his debut feature documentary Those Who Feel the Fire Burning (2014) and his short films Shipwreck (2014), The Atomic Soldiers (2019) and VICE’s viral hit What Does a Nuclear Explosion Feel Like? (2018), the latter of which has garnered more than 60 million views online. His films have received more than 30 international awards.
