One day in a storage facility in Little Rock, during a routine maintenance check, an airman accidentally dropped a six-pound socket wrench—and pierced a hole in a nuclear warhead. In this heart-thumping documentary, Robert Kenner (“Food, Inc.”) plunges viewers inside a US missile facility in 1980, where the Titan II—a weapon more powerful than all the bombs dropped in WWII combined—sat idly, until all hell broke loose. Skillfully interweaving reenactments and riveting interviews with witnesses and former crew, “Command and Control” explores the devastating fallout of a simple accident, one that could easily happen any day of the year. It’s a bracing look at the potentially deadly consequences that can come from even the smallest of human errors as our ever-increasing nuclear arsenal leaves us more exposed to disaster than ever. In Person: Director Robert Kenner.
