“Where the Wind Blew”

Film Screening, Report Launch and Panel Discussion

Monday, 10 April 2017 from 17:00 to 20:00

The Vienna Center for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation (VCDNP) and the Preparatory Commission of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) cordially invite you to attend a screening of the newly released documentary “Where the Wind Blew”, on Monday, 10 April 2017, at 17:00, at the Vienna International Centre, United Nations Information Service Cinema Room G0575. The screening will be held in conjunction with the launch of a special edition of The Nonproliferation Review dedicated to the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT).

“Where the Wind Blew” tells the story of how the Cold War super powers, in their race to acquire ever more deadly arsenals, spent forty years developing nuclear weapons at the expense of vulnerable populations in the name of national security. The film serves as a timely reminder of lessons learned, lessons that warrant renewed attention in light of the current state of world affairs and which underscore the importance of achieving the entry into force of the CTBT.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring the award winning producer and the film’s director, André Singer, as well as a question and answer period, moderated by Laura Rockwood, VCDNP Executive Director.

The panelists will include:

Dr. Lassina Zerbo, Executive Secretary of the CTBTO
André Singer, Director of the film “Where the Wind Blew,” CEO and Creative Director of Spring Films Ltd.
Ambassador Kairat Sarybay, Permanent Representative of Kazakhstan to the International Organizations in Vienna
Andrew Weber, Senior Fellow at Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center, former Assistant Secretary of Defense for Nuclear, Chemical and Biological Defense Programs at the U.S. Department of State
