Abstract

Filmed during the heightened tensions between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R in the 1980s, Threads offers a devastating account of rebuilding society in Sheffield, England after a nuclear holocaust. Population loss, famines, lack of modern technology, and distant, more authoritarian governments emerge in the years after war, returning England to its medieval economic, political, and demographic conditions. The lingering effects of radiation poisoning also take their toll.
