The Day After Trinity
$26.47 $49.99
This is a CD-Rom - NOT DVD - original from the Voyager Company (1995). Assembling rare archival footage and first-person interviews with the nobelists and bright young patriots who built the bomb, The Day After Trinity remains unsurpassed in any medium as an exploration of the events leading up to the Trinity test at Alamagordo on July 16, 1945. With the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the buoyant spirit of the war effort gives way to the grim reality of Cold War, and the elegiac unraveling of the life of Robert Oppenheimer gives The Day After Trinity an emotional force and focus that no other documentary on the subject has achieved. Voyager's CD-ROM takes up where the film left off, augmenting the film with a dossier from the top-secret files of the Manhattan Project, the FBI, and the scientific community. A real-time running commentary by the director and leading documentary scholar, Michael Renov, cues the user to reflect on the problems inherent in translating history onto film.
