Black Rain

Trasfoco: And Life Goes On Section

The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki have left an indelible mark on the universal imaginary as two terrible massacres yet to some degree justified. And while they killed over two hundred thousand people, they at least led to Japan surrendering and the end of the war. What is less well-known is that many of the people who survived the “killing ray” and the “black rain”—names given by victims of the nuclear attack—would die in the following years as a result of radiation. Against the backdrop of the aftermath of the war, the people in a rural village and a small family of survivors remake their lives looking towards the future with hope and optimism.
