In 1954, the Japanese fishing boat Daigo Fukuryu Maru, with a crew of 23 along with many other boats were exposed to nuclear fallout by the detonation of a hydrogen bomb.

58 Years later a documentary crew revisited the incident and interviewed surviving fishermen, including some from other Japanese boats in the area, to bring to light an ordeal whose full impact has been kept in the dark.

Watch the Japanese trailer here. 

Guests arriving early can view the Stop Worrying and Learn to Love the Bomb exhibition organised by WMD Awareness.
