Doc Feature exposes decades-long suppression by U.S. of shocking footage from Hiroshima & Nagasaki.
"What a great film, and original concept. It isn't just brilliantly done--it's an historical first, with images that have been suppressed for decades. An absolutely crucial way to understanding all wars." --Rod Lurie (director, The Outpost, The Contender etc. ) Atomic Cover-up, debuting at Cinequest from March 20-30, is the first documentary to explore the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki from the unique perspective, and startling images, of the cameramen and directors who risked their lives filming in the aftermath. It includes footage never shown before, most of it in color, and in vivid 4K for the first time.
Writer-director Greg Mitchell has written twelve books, including three on this subject and the bestseller The Tunnels. Chief advisers for this film are Academy Award-winning director Alex Gibney and actor/director Alex Winter ("Panama Papers," "Show Biz Kids"), Martin J. Sherwin and Markus Nornes. This month marks 75 years since some of the most haunting images were captured. Atomic Cover-up reveals how this historic footage, created by a Japanese newsreel crew and then an elite U.S. Army team (who shot the only color reels), was seized, classified top secret, and then buried by American officials for decades to hide the full human costs of the bombings as a dangerous nuclear arms race raged. All the while, the creators of the footage, both Japanese and American, made heroic efforts to find and expose the shocking film, to reveal hidden truths of the atomic bombings and the Nuclear Age. Atomic Cover-up represents, at least in part, the film they were not allowed to make, as well as a tribute to documentarians everywhere--and with high relevance for today as nuclear dangers reach a new peak. “An important work, one that’s essential education for a generation with less and less familiarity with the horror of nuclear weapons. A major contribution to our collective memory.” — Daniel M. Gold, longtime film critic, The New York Times FOR INTERVIEW REQUESTS, PLEASE CONTACT: Tiffany Malloy | email@example.com Greg Mitchell is available for interviews, in addition to daughter of Herb Sussan, one of the leaders of the American military team in 1945 who tried for years to get this remarkable footage released.
