SPECTRUM is pleased to announce the UK release of THE MAN WHO SAVED THE WORLD, available now digitally and on DVD from 29th June 2015.
Directed by Peter Anthony, the incredible story of a Russian Lieutenant Colonel mixes fact and fiction to create a gripping historical thriller and personal redemption story.
No one knows his name. No one knows his story. But everyone owes their life to Stanislav Petrov.
September 26, 1983, Stanislav Petrov saves the world from disaster at the peak of the Cold War when tensions between the US and Russia are running high. Decades later, he lives alone in a one bedroom flat on the outskirts of Moscow, his life unravelling around him. But then the United Nations invite Stanislav to New York to reward him for his contribution to the world today and as he embarks on a spectacular journey to save himself, meeting Robert De Niro, Matt Damon and Kevin Costner on the way, this unlikely real life hero reminds us how close we came to Apocalypse and how precarious the world still is today.
THE MAN WHO SAVED THE WORLD is Danish director Peter Anthony’s first feature length documentary. The film is produced by Jakob Staberg and music is by Kristian Eidnes Andersen (Only God Forgives, Nymphomaniac).
We have 3 copies to give away on DVD!
