Screening  |  Buzz One Four, Matt McCormick, 60min, 2017

Part of the Buffalo International FilmFestival

Saturday, October 7, 2017, 12 pm

Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Auditorium  

Buzz One Four is a documentary film by Matt McCormick that chronicles the ill fated flight of a Cold War B-52 bomber loaded with two thermonuclear bombs that crashed 90 miles from Washington DC. The crash has remained classified and details continue to be repressed by the Air Force, but it is a story the filmmaker grew up with because the pilot of the plane was his grandfather. Buzz One Four investigates the aspects of this crash and other nuclear-weapons accidents and leaves us wondering if the United States was in greater danger of nuking itself than being attacked by the Russians.
