The mentality of Cold War and the threat of nuclear conflict may seem like yesterday’s menace, but writer/director Peter Anthony wants to show us they’re still here in The Man Who Saved The World.

Telling a remarkable true story, the film is best described as a drama with documentary elements, following Russian Stanislav Petrov (playing himself), who travels to America in order to be honoured at the Un. Why this is happening gradually becomes clear, as we learn of Petrov’s role as the title “character”. A former Lieutenant Colonel in the Soviet military, his high-stakes decision in interpreting computer data from a perceived Us nuclear strike led to his averting a catastrophic encounter between the two superpowers in the 1980s. »
