For three years a well-known Norwegian extremist gives unique access to his everyday life encouraging jihadists in Europe until he is arrested for supporting terrorism by recruiting for ISIS. This extremely timely film highlights the tension between free societies and those who take advantage of their values while seeking to undermine them. Recruiting for Jihad is especially resonant and ... See full summary »

Schreiber was one of Oppenheimer's brilliant young physicists recruited for the Manhattan Project during World War II. He was entrusted to carry the Plutonium core to Tinian Island where he'd assemble the atomic bomb known to history as "Fatman". In the mid-fifties, he was selected to lead the American effort to build powerful nuclear rocket engines in the secrecy of the Nevada desert just miles from the infamous Area 51. The film includes Interviews with Los Alamos historian Roger Meade and Pulitzer Prize-winning Richard Rhodes. As well, nuclear physicist Taylor Wilson and nuclear engineer Carl Willis discuss Schreiber's "rocket science" with project ROVER. The film contains rare footage, artifacts, photos and audio recordings not seen or heard outside of family for decades. Some consider Schreiber atomic royalty. This is his story.Written by
WAY too chronological up front. Boring in the extreme while farming etc. but worth it. Fast forward a few minutes or stick it out. Slightly unusually interesting stuff for the Manhattan project recruiting stuff with many of the familiar faces, then he gets increasingly interesting jobs, which you've often never quite heard about. Good stories, and he also recorded a grainy audio interview, so we get a fair amount of his own voice in them.
