Wimbledon gets exclusive preview of nuclear terror film In My Lifetime by Robert Frye

Wimbledon gets exclusive preview of nuclear terror film In My Lifetime by Robert Frye

9:14am Wednesday 14th September 2011
By Omar Oakes in The Guardian UK

An exclusive sneak preview of an award-winning film director’s hard-hitting documentary about the spread of nuclear weapons is on show next week.

+ More

The Wimbledon branch of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) is holding a free preview screening of ‘In My Lifetime’ by American filmmaker Robert Frye, who was given special access to big-name politicians and film in the United Nations building in New York City.

Starting with warnings of nuclear terror by Presidents Dwight Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy, the film offers explanations of how key events in history where politicians failed to stop the nuclear arms race during the Cold War.

Mr Frye, a former producer in the United States for ABC News, worked on the film for four years and interviewed several heavyweight experts in nuclear arms, including the former head of the UN’s nuclear weapons watchdog, Mohamed El Baradei.

He said: “This is definitely a documentary, meant for general audiences of all generations and in fact next week, along with the screening taking place in Wimbledon, the film will be screened as an official selection at The Global Peace Film Festival taking place in Orlando, Florida.”

The two-hour screening, on September 20 at 7.30pm in St Andrew’s Church in Herbert Road, will be hosted by the Wimbledon CND secretary, Joanna Bazley.

Ms Bazley, said: “We are privileged to have this film in Merton, as it is not yet on general release.

“It is a deliberately non-confrontational film, allowing space for many different points of view, but this makes the ultimate conclusion all the more powerful: we cannot indefinitely continue nuclear ‘business as usual’ and expect to get away with it.”

Admission to the screening is free. For more information call 020 8543 0362 or email: info@wdc-cnd.org.uk.

+ Comment by Joanna Bazley

There is no local funding for London Peace Week this year. In previous years this has been billed as Merton’s celebration of “peace and unity”, coordinated by Merton’s diversity and community cohesion manager, and it might be thought that minimal public funding, even in this age of cuts, might appropriately be directed at healing some of the wounds left by the riots of the summer. Our Prime Minister has publicly condemned “a culture which glorifies violence” without moving beyond vindictive punishment and retribution.

We are very fortunate to have access to an new impressive documentary by award-winning American producer Bob Frye, “In My Lifetime — a presentation of the Nuclear World Project”, and council officers have agreed that we can show it as Merton’s contribution to London Peace Week. The date is 7·30pm on Tuesday September 20th, the eve of the UN International Day of Peace, and the venue is St Andrew’s Church, Herbert Road SW19. As the final edit of the film has only just been completed following a private preview (which I attended) in Central London in July, this may well be the UK public première and it is definitely not an opportunity to be missed.

Kate Hudson, General Secretary of CND, has accepted our invitation to be present, and Wimbledon MP Stephen Hammond has been invited. Please do everything you can to help publicise this remarkable event which we have had to arrange at short notice. When we showed the Rotblat film last year the Mansel Road venue was too small for the size of the audience. St Andrew’s has a capacity of 600, so let’s fill it!

Robert E. Frye, Executive Producer and Director of In My Lifetime

Bob Frye has been an independent documentary producer and director since 1988 and is well-known in the USA as executive producer of news programmes such as ABC’s World News Tonight (for which he was for 4 years senior producer in London), Good Morning America and World News This Morning (which he created in 1982). His previous work has received multiple awards and includes a feature-length documentary “Berlin Metamorphosis” telling the story of “reunification, reconciliation and rebuilding” — the culmination of a fifteen-year exploration of the impact of World War II — and the post-war period, as well as the story of the Holocaust.

Bob describes “In My Lifetime” as the result of a personal journey which began in 1960 when he was in the US Army in Germany. “This documentary tells one of the most urgent stories of our time; the continuing challenges and struggles of dealing with nuclear weapons and fissile mterials around the world.”

The film was four years in the making and the pace is deliberately gentle, the aim being “to inform, and to create a dialogue” about a complex subject. (“There is a lot to unravel” as he puts it, and “it is easy to become numb to what we have created”).

Many years as a TV journalist have made Bob lots of contacts and he was able to gain access to many very eminent people in his search for material for the film, including carte blanche permission to film inside the UN during the NPT Review Conference of 2010. He stresses the importance of acknowledging different points of view and the film is much more subtle than a campaigning polemic such as “Countdown to Zero”; but slowly but surely the anti-nuclear case is built up. “In my Lifetime” is a quote from Rebecca Johnson.

Rebecca is interviewed on her return to Greenham Common where she spent many years at the Women’s Peace Camp campaigning against Cruise missiles in the 1980s. She is now an eminent academic, director of the ACRONYM Institute and acknowledged expert in the disarmament field, and has given evidence to Select Committees of the House of Commons. In the film she describes her early engagement in ‘direct action’ at Greenham, her many arrests and court appearances. As the women sang and danced on top of one of the nuclear weapons silos at Greenham, they made a promise to restore it to Common Land. “None of us thought we could keep that promise, but we did!” and it is only the power of ordinary people saying “no” that is going to make governments get their act together to remove the nuclear threat from the whole world.

Complete abolition is a real possibility “in my lifetime” according to Rebecca. We need to object to governments “carrying on as usual” and ask why we are wasting resources that could be so much better used. Nuclear weapons are the products of the human intellect and we need to find a more intelligent way of living together, instead of continuing to be imprisoned by the past.

St Andrew’s Church, Herbert Rd SW19

St Andrew’s Church, venue for our film “In My Lifetime”, is ‘behind the houses’ and not well known, but it is a fine Edwardian brick building and very easily accessible from Wimbledon’s buses, trains or trams. Approaching from central Wimbledon, Herbert Road is the fourth turning on the right down Hartfield Road (pedestrian access only). By car or from Merton Park tram stop, the church is best approached from the southern end of Hartfield Road via Graham Road.

7·30pm, Tuesday 20th September.
