TITLE: IRON GIANT
THE IRON GIANT
DIRECTOR: Brad Bird
An adaptation of the Ted Hughes book, this animated feature concerns a boy's friendship with a robot from outer space. The screenplay satirizes fifties cold war paranoia as well as sci-fi films of the era. Watch for the delightful 'cartoon-in-a-cartoon' treatment of the classic DUCK AND COVER!
ATOMIC HYGIENE: Cold War Short Films
This infamous red scare film was put together from television newsreel footage of the May 1960 House Committee on Un-American Activities (HUAC) hearings in San Francisco, its attendant student protests, and the riotous police action (fire hoses used on City Hall protesters) that followed.
