No one knows his name. No one knows his story. But everyone owes their life to Stanislav Petrov.
September 26, 1983, Stanislav Petrov saves the world from nuclear Armageddon. Decades
later, after his life has unraveled around him, his contribution to the world today is recognized, and
he embarks on a spectacular journey to save himself. The Man Who Saved the World seamlessly
mixes fact and fiction to create a historical thriller and personal redemption story. This unlikely real life
hero reminds us how close we came to Apocalypse, and what the loss of billions of lives looks
and feels like.
Peter Anthony graduated from The Royal Academy of Fine Arts School of Architecture in Denmark and worked as an architect before starting a career as a theater and film director. The Man Who Saved the World is Peter's first feature length film.
