Default Countdown to Zero in selected theaters starting July 23

I can sympathize with the media cynicism in this case. Sorry, but a bunch of polite people handing out sheets of paper doesn't sell newspapers, and it's sure not must-watch teevee.
We're actually promoting this film which we're screening (co-sponsoring) on Friday in LA. The LA screening includes a panel discussion with Lawrence Bender, the producer.

I don't really have an issue with the fire drill; I'd just like to see more awareness of prevention (abolition) and the likely real political consequences of a nuclear attack.

I'd like people to connect the dots between what happened as a consequence of 9/11 (two wars, both of which continue nearly 10 yrs later, the combined cost of which is in the trillions, the casualties of which are in the millions) and what would happen in the event of a nuke that might kill not 3,000 but 30,000 or 300,000 Americans.
