WHY:             A native New Mexican and a descendant of a Manhattan Project worker, Larry L. Sheffield brings vital insight to his upcoming film, “Oppenheimer After Trinity.” which will be premiered on April 22nd in Los Alamos at the SALA Event Center.

As Los Alamos and the rest of the world prepare for the global premiere of Christopher Nolan’s “Oppenheimer,” Sheffield’s documentary provides a unique, local lens to explore events that occurred immediately after the testing of the world’s first atomic bomb in July of 1945.

The thought-provoking and insightful documentary offers a rare and intimate glimpse into the mind of Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer, and the moments leading up to and following the first atomic bomb test in the New Mexico desert. The film features rare footage and photographs, along with compelling testimony from Dr. Oppenheimer’s grandson, Charles Oppenheimer. The official premiere of “Oppenheimer After Trinity” will take place on April 22nd, 2023, J. Robert Oppenheimer’s birthday.

Larry’s first film, “Alamogordo, Center of the World, Trinity 1945,” won recognition in four film festivals. His second film, “Oppenheimer After Trinity,” has been officially selected by four film festivals to be considered for best documentary.
