Synopsis:
Delving into the life of J. Robert Oppenheimer, a prominent physics professor at UC Berkeley, this documentary unveils his pivotal role in developing the atomic bomb as the leader of Los Alamos Lab during WWII. The profound impact of witnessing the bomb's inaugural explosion in 1945 moved him to quote the Bhagavad Gita, expressing, "I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." Beyond his renowned contribution to nuclear physics, the film traces his early years and subsequent advocacy for strict controls on nuclear weapons.
Through illuminating interviews and fresh perspectives, the documentary weaves together the voices of those who shared personal connections with Oppenheimer, as well as individuals whose lives were shaped by his lasting legacy.
