Beating the Bomb…

Beating the Bomb – Documentary. Produced & Directed by: Meera Patel & Wolfgang Matt.

Beating the Bomb is a feature length documentary that two London based activists, Meera Patel and Wolfgang Matt, began making three years back and completed recently. The documentary frames the nuclear weapons issue within the wider context of global justice. The narrative follows the history of the British peace movement against the political backdrop of the atomic age (1941-present day). The film charts the efforts of individuals and organizations to rid Britain of its nuclear weapons system from past to present. It is not only a piece of revisionist history but also a tribute to the peace movement. Time and time again the peace campaigners challenge ‘the myth of collective impotence’ and stress the fact that it is wrong to think individuals can’t make a difference; on the contrary, individuals, if determined, can in fact make a huge difference. The film is an attempt to mediate their conviction and thus inspire the viewer.
