the Atomic Cafe


1982 documentary on the bombing of Hiroshima, Nagasaki as well as Cold War propaganda afterwards.

The film was produced over a five-year period through the collaborative efforts of three directors: Jayne Loader, and brothers Kevin and Pierce Rafferty. For this film, the Rafferty brothers and Loader formed the production company “Archives Project Inc.” The filmmakers opted to not use narration, and instead they deployed carefully constructed sequences of film clips to make their points.
