Exclusive Clip: American Blackout: “There’s Someone At The Fence… They Want Food”
October 24th, 2013
This Sunday night the National Geographic Channel will be airing the premier of their new full length post-collapse feature film.
Gridlock… Fires… Looting… Panic… All unfolding in real-time.
If a cyber attack took down the national power grid, would you be ready?
Imagine 10 days of a catastrophic blackout across the United States. No cell phone service, no ATM withdrawals, no working street lights, no available gasoline … no escape.
Fact: It could happen.
On Sunday, October 27, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, the lights will go out.
American Blackout, National Geographic Channel’s two-hour, edge-of-your-seat movie event imagines the story of a national power failure in the United States caused by a cyberattack — told in real time, over 10 days, by those who kept filming on cameras and phones. You’ll learn what it means to be absolutely powerless.
Gritty, visceral and totally immersive, see what it might take to survive from day one, and who would be left standing when the lights come back on.
