Synopsis: Loving the Bomb is a hand-drawn animation that constructs a portrait of a family grappling with contradiction: how to live with the effects of nuclear weapons while depending on their production? Amidst positive atomic propaganda and exhilarating accounts of nuclear testing, the blank faces of father, mother and child reveal confusion and our minute stature compared to the industry.
