The Nuclear Age in Six Movements

July 27, 2015

This beautifully animated short film traces the history of the nuclear age, from the Manhattan Project to build the first atomic bomb to the present efforts to achieve a treaty banning all nuclear weapons. Poignant and uplifting, it is both an educational resource and a work of art. It is dedicated to all hibakusha everywhere.
