War of the Worlds: American Experience

With the CBS radio broadcast of Orson Welles’ “War of the Worlds” serving as its narrative spine, the film examines the elements that together created one of the biggest mass hysteria events in U.S. history. Public outcry, forever immortalized in thousands of letters written to CBS, the FCC and Mr. Welles himself, are dramatized in on-camera interviews, bringing to life the people who listened that night to the broadcast and thought it was either awfully good fun or the end of the world.
