THE STRANGEST DREAM
The story of Joseph Rotblat, nuclear pioneer and dedicated peace activist,is
intertwined with that of Nova Scotia's influential Thinkers' Lodge in Eric
Bednarksi's feature documentary NFB debut. The Cold War is vividly recalled
rare archival footage and contemporary interviews with the likes of General
Roméo Dallaire and Sergei Khrushchev; the roll call at the annual Pugwash
Conference on Science and World Affairs has included such important
as founder/financier Cyrus Eaton and philosopher Bertrand Russell. With a
narrative sweep that begins in the years just before World War II and ends
Rotblat's passing just a few years ago, The Strangest Dream takes its
on a journey through the intricate practicalities of pacifism in the midst
humanity's most violent century.
