These 12 full-length CDs document the Vandermark 5 playing at Alchemia, a major nightclub in Kraków, Poland, for a period of five evenings in March 2005. Over the course of well more than 12 hours of music, the quintet solidifies its reputation as one of the most innovative and exciting jazz groups of its time, as magic fills the air every night. It is difficult to imagine a more compelling set of modern jazz. The invigorated Polish audience welcomed the group enthusiastically, and the musicians responded with thrilling performances that summarize the state of the band, which was in peak form, and suggest the directions in which jazz is heading as a creative force…
It was the defining moment of the 20th Century - the scientific, technological, military, and political gamble of the world's first atomic attack. This drama-documentary attempts to do what no other film has done before - to show what it is like to live through a nuclear explosion, millisecond by millisecond. Set in the three weeks from the first test explosion in New Mexico to the eventual dropping of the bomb, the action takes viewers into the room where the crucial political decisions are made; on board the Enola Gay on her fateful voyage; inside the bomb as it explodes; and on the streets of Hiroshima when disaster strikes.
Gama Bomb combine the reckless, head-banging intensity of 80s thrash metal with a 21st century love of all things geek. After self-releasing their first album 'Survival Of The Fastest' in 2005, albums 'Citizen Brain' (2008) and 2009's 'Tales from the Grave in Space' marked them out as a band with big ideas, with 'Tales…' being one of the first albums ever released as a free download by a signed band. Their unique mix of pop culture nods, speed metal and knowing humour won a cult following in Europe and far beyond, which they cemented with tireless touring. In 2013, the band signed to AFM Records to release 'The Terror Tapes', followed this year by their most audacious move yet: 'Untouchable Glory', an unapologetically hooky thrash album inspired by vintage kung fu movies!

The film mixes testimony, archive, CGI and full-scale reconstruction to communicate the detailed content and context of this terrible event.
