Hiroshima Film Poster


Drama-documentary demonstrating what it is like to live through a nuclear explosion, millisecond by millisecond, by focusing on one of the defining moment of the 20th Century and looking at the scientific, technological, military, and political gamble of the world's first atomic attack. Set in the three weeks from the first test explosion in New Mexico to the eventual dropping of the bomb, dramatised reconstructions cover all perspectives, from the crew of the Enola Gay on her fateful voyage, to the inside of the bomb itself as it explodes, and finally onto the streets of Hiroshima when disaster strikes. While special effects recreate the reality of the mission, archive footage replays the horrific aftermath.
