NUKED @ Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema - Saturday Feb 10 @ 6:30pm
Join us for a screening of NUKED with a Q&A afterwards with Director Andrew Nisker!
At the height of the Cold War, the US detonated 23 nuclear weapons over the Bikini Atoll, for a total of 67 in the Marshall Islands, the consequences of which reverberate down through generations.
"NUKED" is a timely and compelling new feature documentary that tells the human story of the nuclear arms race, tracing a people’s ongoing 74 year struggle to survive from the first detonation in 1946 to the present day US as their ongoing quest for justice takes on extra urgency with climate change posing a new and imminent existential threat.
Through unparalleled access to the people of Bikini and with a wealth of recently de-classified, never seen before footage from the US Army and Airforce, "NUKED" weaves a haunting tale that resurrects contemporary islanders’ voices. It juxtaposes these with the full, awesome fury of the test detonations.
"NUKED" starkly contrasts the official record with the lived experience of the Bikinians themselves, serving as an important counterpoint to this summer’s Oppenheimer.
What People are saying
Nuked is a brilliantly researched indictment of one of the great tragedies of the post-Hiroshima age, the United States' nuclear nuclear bomb testing program that decimated the Marshall Islands, causing death and devastation to countless islanders through radiation poisoning.
Andrew Nisker has made a powerful film, which underscores the gentleness of the Marshallese, who have endured illness and exile due to the thoughtless actions of the American military industrial complex during the Cold War era.
