Screening w/ Filmmaker Q&A
Buzz One Four, Matt McCormick (dir.), 60min, 2017
BIFF USA: Documentary Feature
Director Matt McCormick in attendance
Buzz One Four 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 AirForce, 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.
