4th Tuesday Films: White Light/Black Rain: The Destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, filmmaker Steven Okazaki revisits the bombings and shares the stories of the only people to have survived a nuclear attack.
In addition to interviews with 14 atomic bomb survivors, many of whom have never spoken publicly before, White Light/Black Rain spotlights four Americans intimately involved in the bombings. Okazaki interweaves rarely seen, intense archival footage and photographs, banned for 25 years after the war, with survivors' paintings and drawings, all of which convey the devastating toll of atomic warfare in human terms.
Film is free and open to all.
