Hiroshima: 75 Years Later

To coincide with the 75th anniversary of the dropping of the atomic bombs on Japan, we are making a feature documentary for the History Channel  and A&E international telling the story of the development of this weapon from the perspective of those who were involved in the building of it and those who suffered its impact on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

We are re-examining these historical events looking at the atomic bomb as a scientific experiment that began as a piece of theoretical physics and ended as a long-term study into the devastating effects of radiation on the human body.

Narrated by the people who lived through it and using personal as well as public archives, the documentary gives voice to the scientists and military men who developed, made and dropped the bombs and also to the survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, giving the audience the opportunity to reflect on the consequences of this weapon in a thought-provoking journey to reconsider these infamous events under a new lens.

The documentary will utilize never-before-seen archival footage, long-suppressed color film from the immediate aftermath of the bomb and audio testimony from victims, to provide a highly personal understanding of the most devastating experiment in human history.
