The Tricycle goes nuclear this weekend

To coincide with their new theatrical production ‘The Bomb: A Partial History’, the Tricycle are kicking off a weekend of films focusing on the atomic bomb. Tonight’s double bill of devastating British cartoon ‘When the Wind Blows’ and Peter Watkins’s long-banned 60s information film ‘The War Game’ is just one of the highlights. Over the weekend, you can catch Alain Resnais’s unbearably powerful post-nucelar romance ‘Hiroshima Mon Amour’ paired up with Chris Marker’s lovely ‘La Jetee’, cracking Cuban Missile Crisis drama ‘Thirteen Days’, melancholy Aussie elegy ‘On the Beach’ plus loads of docs and dramas, and of course the ultimate nuclear classic, ‘Dr Strangelove’ (above).
