A compilation film juxtaposing Cold War history, propaganda, music and culture, THE ATOMIC CAFE was created by 3 filmmakers over a 5-year period from government-produced educational and training films, newsreels and advertisements. THE ATOMIC CAFE teaches the public how to live in the Atomic Age, how to survive a nuclear attack--and how fight and win a nuclear war. Armageddon was never so darkly funny as it is in THE ATOMIC CAFE. As a U.S. Army training film advises, 'Viewed from a safe distance, the atomic bomb is one of the most beautiful sights ever seen by man.' This 1982 cult classic returns in a sparkling, 4K digital restoration created by IndieCollect.
