The Vow of Hiroshima

Director: Susan Strickler
Runtime: 82 minutes

THE VOW FROM HIROSHIMA is an intimate portrait of Setsuko Thurlow, a passionate, 85-year-old survivor of the atomic bomb in Hiroshima. Her moving story is told through the lens of her growing friendship with a second generation survivor, Mitchie Takeuchi.

Setsuko Thurlow devoted her entire life to demanding a nuclear-free world. Culminating with Thurlow’s acceptance speech at the 2017 Nobel Peace Awards, this documentary explores Thurlow’s life and work, as well as her evolving friendship with director Mitchie Takeuchi, a second-generation survivor.

In telling Thurlow’s story, Takeuchi breaks her own family’s silence about the devastating nuclear attacks.
