Program Abstract: A spellbinding story, magnificient performances -this film has it all. Hiroshma: Out of the Ashes recounts the unimaginable event of August 6, 1944 when the entire city of Hiroshima was annihilated by a nuclear bomb. Seen through the eyes of a disparate group of survivors, the aftermath of the bombing is revealed in all its horrific ferocity: whole city blocks have been vaporized and anguished citizens search for loved ones in the magled debris. Interweaving tales of courage and redemption, Hiroshima: Out of the Ashes is a devastating portrait of destruction and an inspiring story of the resilence of the human spirit.
