In theaters now: Countdown to Zero

Posted by:

Created by the team behind An Inconvenient Truth and starring TED2010 speaker (and former CIA covert operative) Valerie Plame Wilson, Countdown to Zero began playing theaters of select cities this week. At TED, Plame spoke about the compelling need to bring the number of nuclear weapons in the world to zero and the film delves further into her argument, with commentary from world leaders like Tony Blair, Jimmy Carter and Mikhail Gorbachev.

Watch the trailer:


Developed and produced by Participant Media, TEDsters Jeff Skoll, Lawrence Bender, Ricky Strauss and Jim Berk all had a big part to play in bringing this critical global issue to the big screen.
