Nominated for an Academy Award, John Junkerman's documentary film Hellfire: A Journey from Hiroshima captures the artists Iri and Toshi Maruki in their decades-long collaboration to create a testament to the effects of the atomic bomb- the Hiroshima Murals, which have been viewed by over 100 million people around the world. Haunted by the memories of Hiroshima after the atomic blast, the Marukis began a series of monumental paintings depicting what they had seen. With engaging interviews and extended sequences of the Marukis at work, Hellfire reveals a message of hope in our nuclear age, and is a reminder of the power of art to render visible and meaningful what still seems unimaginable.
