Clouds Of Death
CLOUDS OF DEATH traces the grim history of biological and chemical warfare, from the Medieval practice of catapulting plague-contaminated flesh into enemy strongholds to the use of Sarin gas in World War I and modern cases like the attack in the Tokyo subway and Saddam Hussein's efforts to develop chemical weapons for Iraq. Interviews with leading experts and extensive documentation and archival footage tell the harrowing story of these long condemned, horrifying, efficient instruments of death that can be developed in near-total secrecy and unleashed by individuals, and which many fear will dominate the headlines in the years to come. B&W/Color, 50 minutes.
