In a globetrotting journey through various perspectives on nuclear weapons, this film takes us from the Peace Museums of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, to the “Nuclear Science” museums of the United States, to the place that birthed the atomic bomb, (and cares for it still) the state of New Mexico. Featuring former U.S. Secretary of State, George Shultz, authors Gar Alperovitz and Jonathan Schell, Japanese bomb survivors, and many others, The Forgotten Bomb explores our pre-conceptions about nuclear weapons and their history, investigates how they inform our sense of identity, and discovers what the bomber can learn from the bombed.

Presented in honor of Hiroshima and Nagasaki Remembrance Day
