Synopsis by Nathan Southern
The United States and the U.S.S.R. entered a strange, unsettling period after WWII - the infamous Cold War, wherein a capitalist bloc and a Communist one squared off against one another with a series of escalating nuclear threats and propagandist rhetoric. Each side in the conflict passionately claimed that the other wanted to destroy its way of life - though fortunately, violence between the two said countries never erupted. Instead, the weapons deployed in the battle were ideological. Produced over two decades after the collapse of the Iron Curtain. this documentary examines the various nuances of the Cold War in twenty-year hindsight.
