Editorial Reviews

Armageddon has never been so darkly funny as in The Atomic Café. This 1982 cult classic juxtaposes Cold War history, propaganda, music and culture, seamlessly crafted from government-produced educational and training films, newsreels and advertisements. Taken together, these sources cheerily instruct the public on how to live in the Atomic Age, how to survive a nuclear attack (!) ... and how to fight and win a nuclear war. 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." Returning to home video in a sparkling 4K digital restoration created by IndieCollect, The Atomic Cafe is an absurdist blast from the past that would be downright laughable if it weren't so eerily relevant to our fake news present.

Special Features: Selection of government propaganda films (courtesy of the prelinger archives) | Filmwax radio interview with Kevin Rafferty, Jayne Loader, and Pierce Rafferty | Audio excerpts from Jayne Loader's CD-ROM "Public Shelter" | Trailer
