New Film Explores U.S. Suppression of Key Footage from Hiroshima and Nagasaki

by Greg Mitchell (2020)

Abstract:
Elite Japanese and American film teams shot the most important and disturbing film, including rare color images, in the aftermath of the atomic bombings. Then it was buried by U.S. authorities for decades as the nuclear arms race raged.

Greg Mitchell is the author of a dozen books, including most recently The Tunnels: Escapes Under the Berlin Wall (Crown) and The Beginning or the End: How Hollywood--and America--Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.
He is the former editor of Editor & Publisher and co-producer of Following the Ninth, a film about the global political influence of Beethoven's final symphony.
