Join audiences across the UK and Ireland for Demand Zero Day: The simultaneous nationwide premiere of the film COUNTDOWN TO ZERO on Tuesday 21 June.

COUNTDOWN TO ZERO will open the Global Zero London summit with a Gala screening at BAFTA. High-profile dignitaries, UK parliamentarians, and celebrities will come together to hear a discussion panel starring Her Majesty Queen Noor, Labour Party politician Margaret Beckett, ex-CIA operative Valerie Plame Wilson and Oscar-winning producer Lawrence Bender.
