“An extraordinary tale of victory, hypocrisy and ignorance.”
In this spectacular multi-media investigation of America in the Atomic Age, unnerving images, vibrant rhythms, disturbing text, and violent slapstick collide to create an erotic pop culture explosion.  Focusing on the period of 1941-1969, Nuclear Love Affair traces America’s obsession with violence through the social and political chain reaction caused by dropping of the atomic bomb.  Featuring Elvis Presley dancing through Vietnam, Charlie Chaplin at Hiroshima, Lucille Ball doing a commercial for an electric chair, and  Marilyn Monroe teaching us all how to “Duck and Cover,” Nuclear Love Affair is a daring take on the evolution of the American Dream.

“A daringly experimental, multimedia pastiche about the rise and fall of America in the Atomic Age, easily well worth the price of admission.”
