There will be two films shown. The first is Steven Okazaki’s award-winning
documentary on hibakusha in Hiroshima, The Mushroom Club. The second is
Trinity and Beyond: The Atomic Bomb Movie which is a very amazing, emotional,
visual and gut-wrenching reaction to nuclear arms. From Hiroshima to the
global present, the history of atomic and hydrogen bomb design, production
and testing by the United States on cities, islands, underwater, underground
and in the atmosphere. Rare, archival footage of nuclear bomb tests conducted
by Great Britain, China and Russia are astonishing. Produced by Peter
Kuran, narrated by William Shatner (1995).
