“The Man Who Saved the World” tells the tale of Stanislav Petrov, a Soviet colonel who defied protocol and did not launch a retaliatory nuclear strike when a warning alarm was accidentally triggered in 1983.

A discussion and special reception with the film’s producers and PSR-LA physicians will follow the screening. Producers Mark Romeo and Christian Ditlev Bruun will share their insights and answer questions about the film. PSR-LA board members Dr. Jimmy Hara and Dr. Bob Dodge will address the continuing risks of accidental nuclear war.

We hope you will join us on September 26, the U.N. International Day for the Elimination of Nuclear Weapons and also the exact anniversary of the date of Petrov’s historic actions.

Tickets are $25 and include the screening, discussion, and reception. Seating is limited so please RSVP today! For more information about the screening contact Denise Duffield at 213-689-9170 ext. 104 or [email protected]. For more information about the movie see
