On March Ist, 1954, 23 Japanese fishermen aboard Daigo Fukuryu Maru (Lucky Dragon No.5) witnessed the detonation of Castle Bravo, the first in a series of hydrogen bomb tests conducted by the Americans. This 'kamishibai-inspired animated documentary uses intimate interviews with surviving crew members to recreate the moment of the explosion, the fallout that followed, and how the fishermen coped with their new reality of being 'hibakusha.'
From summer to winter and back again, 'No Horizon Anymore,' takes you on a journey few have experienced. Less than 2,000 people have spent the austral winter at the South Pole Station. Here, we follow members of the winterover crew from 2009 as they share their views on the interactions, the people, the environment, and the science that takes place during a busy year. After the sun sets, the crew succumbs to six months of inky darkness. Certain levels of 'toastiness' set in as routines are interrupted, and limits are tested. The only cure for claustrophobia is an unattainable outside world. With rare footage of the austral winter at 90 S, this is a must see for polar enthusiasts and adventurers alike.
