$150,000

2017 • 1 year, 7 months • Nuclear Challenges

Women Make Movies is a multicultural, multiracial, non-profit media arts organization that facilitates the production, distribution, and exhibition of independent films and videotapes by and about women. Women Make Movies produces a smaller scale, mobile version of the bomb, a MacArthur-funded installation experience that raises public awareness about the grave threat that nuclear weapons still pose today, and which received significant attention at the Tribeca Film Festival. The mobile version exhibits at museums around the United States and internationally, thus extending the reach and impact of the bomb and MacArthur’s initial investment.

It draws on footage from the MacArthur-funded Command and Control, a documentary film on the management of America’s nuclear arsenal by Eric Schlosser. Opening as a standalone performance piece late in the fall of 2015, the bomb commemorates the 70th anniversary of three transformative events that occurred during the summer of 1945: the test of the first nuclear device in the New Mexico desert and the destruction of two Japanese cities by atomic bombs.
