Day of the Western Sunrise

Day of the Western Sunrise
In a rough-cut screening of the new documentary, Day of the Western Sunrise, director Keith Reimink searches for the remaining survivors of a shipwreck that made history. The Japanese fishermen aboard Lucky Dragon No. 5 didn’t know that when they set out on March 1, 1954, they’d survive the largest explosion created by man: the Castle Bravo thermonuclear test in the Pacific Ocean. Through animation and interviews with the remaining members of the crew, the film sets out to tell the story of how the survivors’ lives were impacted, and the long-term effects of the devastating explosion. -Lauren Ortego
