BIG EVENT in LAWRENCE, KANSAS!
6:00 PM CT
SCREENING OF TELEVISION EVENT
REUNION of THE DAY AFTER PARTICIPANTS
Online Info Coming Soon!
This feature documentary is about how ‘The Day After’ (1983),
a TV movie which imagined a nuclear war in the US heartland,
shook a nation,
rattled a president
and helped lead to history’s biggest decline in nuclear weapons.
Today, however polarized we may be ideologically, we can still come together and better inform ourselves about their obscene devastation.
For an “oddly funny”, “moving and engaging”
portrayal of the impending threat of nuclear apocalypse,
we invite you to watch our film ‘Television Event’.
“Jeff’s film is more than a warning. It is an inspiring and uplifting story about what a few courageous individuals can do when they have a vision and won’t let anything stop them from reaching their goal.”
-- Arthur Kanegis
Watch Jeff Daniels, the Director of the film, on the

How did a major US network make such an earth-shaking film?
Jeff brings us the nitty-gritty in his new film about the 1983 hit "The Day After" by interviewing the director and TV execs about the intense controversy extending all the way to the White House.
Nicholas Meyer, Directed "THE DAY AFTER” He also directed STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN and STAR TREK VI: THE UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY-- and wrote STAR TREK IV: THE VOYAGE HOME.
We talked with Nicholas about how he and ABC President Brandon Stoddard were able, with grit and determination, to navigate the creation of this film through TV execs, aghast sponsors and a presidential attempt at censorship!
