The Nuns, The Priests, and The Bombs focuses on US nuclear weapons policies through the eyes of plowshares activists as well as other activists and experts on nuclear weapons, and challenges us to ask how we can continue to hold the world under the threat of nuclear annihilation some 70 years after nuclear weapons were first used.
Filmmaker Helen Young began this project not long after the Disarm Now Plowshares action, and through the course of filming wove other elements into it, significantly the Transform Now Plowshares. Considering current nuclear weapons issues and developments, this film could not be more timely and important.
