Panel discussion with Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan, Valerie Plame Wilson, Lawrence Bender and Margaret Beckett.

Countdown to Zero, directed by Lucy Walker (Wasteland) and produced by the Academy Award winning producers of An Inconvenient Truth, is a fascinating and frightening exploration of the dangers of nuclear weapons. The film exposes a variety of ever-present and real nuclear weapons threats and features fascinating insights from a host of international experts and world leaders including Mikhail Gorbachev, Jimmy Carter and Pervez Musharraf.

Countdown to Zero is a chilling wake-up call about the urgency of the nuclear threat. It tells the striking story of uncertainty, exposing the real possibility of nuclear disaster and revealing the truth behind an issue on which human survival itself hangs.

    Am I correct in thinking that this is actually a multi-venue Picturehouses event that the festival has decided to include in its programme, as if it was unique to the EIFF?
