1. Snake Dance is a story of two men in the New Mexico desert. One was a cultural theorist and art historian who went mad during the aftermath of the First World War. The other was a physicist… and he was the father of the atomic bomb. Aby Warburg (1866-1929) and J. Robert Oppenheimer (1904-1967) can be seen as twisted reflections of one another: brilliant, cultured polymaths. One believed fervently in the healing powers of ritual, the ‘snake dance’ of the Hopi Indians. The other, whether wittingly or not, unleashed the forces of destruction. (Text © Flanders Image)

  2. Nous n’avons pas reçu le savoir pour fabriquer la bombe atomique; nous avons choisi de le développer. Et depuis, le monde vit les conséquences de ce choix. Ni tout-à-fait documentaire, ni fiction, Snake Dance est une lecture personnelle et émouvante de la funeste décision de l’humanité de jouer à Dieu.
