Hosted by: Mr Alyn Ware, PNND and Mr Serzhan Abdykarimov, Ambassador of Kazakhstan, Embassy of Kazakhstan to Czech Republic
Special Guest: Mr André Singer, the award-winning producer and film director 

Parliamentarians for Nuclear Nonproliferation and Disarmament (PNND) and the Embassy of Kazakhstan to the Czech Republic will hold the Premier screening in the Czech Republic of the film “Where the Wind Blew” which will take place on Tuesday, 12 September 2017 to commemorate the International Day against Nuclear Tests.

Where the Wind Blew, a 72-minute documentary, tells the stories of populations in Kazakhstan and the United States who continue to suffer from the trans-generational impact of nuclear tests, conducted by the Cold War super powers, in their race to acquire ever more deadly arsenals in the name of national security.

The film includes the story of Karipbek Kuyukov, a 2nd generation victim of Soviet nuclear tests in Kazakhstan, who was born without arms. Kuyukov is an accomplished artist who paints with his mouth and toes.

The film serves as a timely reminder of lessons learned about the impact of nuclear weapons, lessons that warrant renewed attention in light of the current state of world affairs where the threat of nuclear weapons use – by accident, miscalculation or intent - has returned.

The event, which will be held in English, will include a reception from 17:15, film screening from 18:00 and a panel discussion after the film featuring:

  • Mr André Singer, the award-winning producer and director of the film;
  • Mr Alyn Ware, PNND Global Coordinator;
  • Mr Serzhan Abdykarimov, Ambassador of Kazakhstan to the Czech Republic;
    and other guests committed to ending nuclear tests and achieving a nuclear-weapon-free world.
