On July 16, 1945, Los Alamos scientists exploded the first atomic bomb at the so called Trinity site, near the village Alamogordo. "We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent... Now I am become death: the destroyer of worlds", said Julius Robert Oppenheimer recalling that first atomic bomb test. Now 70 Years later, on July 16, 2015, starts the 5th International Uranium Film Festival Rio de Janeiro in the Cinemateque of Rio's Modern Art Museum (MAM). Because of administrative reasons it is this year just a two day program in July, but further festival screenings in Rio are planned in September.
