Nukes in the Florida Room

Film festival in South Beach faces elections head-on

"John Kerry in the debate right here in Miami pointed out that nuclear proliferation is the most pressing issue facing us," says Mitrani. "And Bush agreed." Zaldívar feels Original Child Bomb "addreses precisely that issue: how the nuclear threat has changed since the time of the Cold War, what the price of nuclear war would be for a future generation." The tragedies of Hiroshima and Nagasaki shocked the world in 1945, but the atomic age is now. The situation is volatile. The ultimate weapons of mass destruction, nowhere to be found in Iraq, are still with us, elsewhere, unchecked. That may be the most disturbing message of all.
