White Light, Black Rain: The Destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki DVD

SKU ID #100600
$19.98
The trauma of war lingers long after the scars have healed. On August 6, 1945, American forces dropped an atomic bomb on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan. Steven Okazaki's HBO special "White Light, Black Rain: The Destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki" (2007) tells the story of the people who survived these horrific events, as well as the individuals who dropped the bombs. Even though Japan overcame the hardships that followed the unparalleled destruction, becoming a global economic power, the nation's psyche still suffers lingering effects from the bombings.

        Compelling and Thrilling. Reality at It's Core. This Documentary has to offer what the American educational system to the government has yet to feed us from their destructive and cold leadership. Very touching, for we finally get to hear first hand the thoughts of those who were victimized of a brutal war.. masterpiece, like the "Mona Lisa," this film offers a priceless and deep meaning behind the image.
