Between 1946 and 1958 the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission exploded at least 66 nuclear devices in the Marshall Islands, contaminating them for centuries to come. This film is about the devastating effects of radiation on the islanders. In the course of his investigations, the filmmaker found that the official view of the tests was unsustainable.
Directed by Dennis O'Rourke in 1985. Won the Peace Film Award in 1986 at the Berlin International Film Festival
