I don't believe the director (or McCarthy for that matter) intended the audience/readers to know what cataclysm caused the apocalyptic backdrop for the drama. It is not specified in either McCarthy's novel or the film - and is left ambiguous so that we may focus more on the situation at hand, rather than the causes and 'finger-pointing'.
