Command and Control

COMMAND AND CONROL is a harrowing documentary about a nuclear disaster that was barely averted just one state over in Damascus, Arkansas. Based on Eric Schlosser’s critically acclaimed book, COMMAND AND CONTROL exposes how the combination of technological complexity and human fallibility has repeatedly brought the nation and world to the brink of nuclear disaster.


COMMAND AND CONTROL draws upon recently declassified documents and eyewitness interviews to tell a minute-by-minute account of the events that unfolded on September 18, 1980, at a Titan II missile complex near Damascus, AR. The film offers a window into the system vulnerabilities and human fallibilities that could lead to catastrophe. The result is a gripping and suspenseful thriller that imparts crucial context to an issue Americans know little about.
