Sneak Preview Screening: Car Bomb, A History with ex-CIA agent Robert Baer

Screening Thursday 17th July, 2008

Forget about nuclear missiles, the decisive weapon of the twenty first century is the car bomb. In his startling new film Car Bomb, ex-CIA agent Robert Baer, whose life was depicted by George Clooney in the Oscar-winning movie Syriana, for the first time uncovers the history of this extraordinary weapon.

After Iraq we now know you can defeat a superpower, start a civil war or just blow up your own government with a trunk load of home-made explosives and a battered old car.

“The most shocking film you will ever see…”

From the Middle East, Oklahoma, Ireland and the streets of the City of London the car bomb has shaped human conflict. Even today the car bomb remains the number one terrorist threat across the world.

With shocking footage of car bomb attacks and penetrating interviews with car bombers, Baer reveals how the century of the car turned into the century of the car bomb.

And how a dream of freedom turned nightmare.
