During the week of the 2016 Nuclear Security Summit, NTI co-hosted a special preview screening of a new film, Command and Control, based on Eric Schlosser’s book by the same name.
The film focuses on the story of a deadly accident at a Titan II missile complex in Damascus, Arkansas in 1980. Held at a theater in downtown Washington, the film attracted a sell-out crowd that included California Gov. Jerry Brown, former U.S. Secretary of Defense William Perry, White House and congressional staff, experts and others. Following the film, NTI Co-Chairman and CEO Sam Nunn spoke on a panel with Eric Schlosser and Robert Kenner, the film’s director; Jeanne Meserve, formerly of CNN and ABC News, served as moderator.
