How to Prevent a Nuclear Warby Liane Brandon
An upbeat practical guide to effective grassroots organizing.
How To Prevent A Nuclear War is a refreshingly upbeat and compelling look at the kinds of activities that anyone can engage in to lessen the threat of nuclear war. Featured in fifteen unforgettable vignettes, are activists of all types including a suburban housewife who stuffs pamphlets in the pockets of fellow skiers while riding the ski lift, a group of small town citizens who visit their congressman, a high school student, a flight attendant, and the founder of an inner city gospel choir who conducts concerts for peace.
Musical highlights include a spirited cabaret rendition of Tom Lehrer's satirical ditty "We Will All Go Together When We Go" and the Vernon Jones Gospel Singers in concert.
This inspiring film will leave viewers with the feeling that they can and must make a difference.
I loved it! This movie makes peace work as appealing as motherhood and apple pie.

Brandon has produced the film that organizers have been waiting for - the film that tells you not just how bad things are, but what you can do about it!
