Beyond the Classroom presents "White Light, Black Rain: The Destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki"

Is it possible to imagine a world without nuclear arms? On August 6th and 9th, 1945, two atomic bombs vaporized 210,000 people in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Those who survived are called hibakusha people exposed to the bomb and there are an estimated 200,000 survivors living today. Today the threat of nuclear weapons of mass destruction remains frighteningly real as the worlds arsenal is capable of repeating the destruction at Hiroshima 400,000 times over. With the documentary White Light, Black Rain: The Destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Oscar award-winning filmmaker Steven Okazaki revisits the bombings through archival military films and shares the personal stories of the only people to survive a nuclear attack. {Will appear in FYI on Aug 2, 2011
