Event details

Directed by Stanley Kubrick
Starring Peter Sellers, George C. Scott, Sterling Hayden

Kubrick’s BAFTA winning black comedy is 60 years old this year. Through a series of military and political accidents, two psychotic generals – U.S. Air Force Commander Jack D. Ripper (Sterling Hayden) and Joint Chief of Staff “Buck” Turgidson (George C. Scott) – trigger an ingenious, irrevocable scheme to attack Russia’s strategic targets with nuclear bombs. The brains behind the scheme belong to Dr. Strangelove (Peter Sellers), a wheelchair-bound nuclear scientist who has bizarre ideas about man’s future.

This special screening is presented by Professor of Film at Bangor University, Nathan Abrams, co-author of Kubrick: An Odyssey published by Faber.

The film will be introduced by Nathan Abrams followed by a Q&A.
