Atomic Mom

Japan/USA, 2010, 80 min, English, English subtitles

Atomic Mom weaves an intimate portrait of a complex mother-daughter relationship within an obscure moment in American history. Pauline Silvia, the filmmaker's mother, undergoes a crisis of conscience about her work in the military during the early 1950's Atomic Testing Program.

The film follows these mothers, each on a different end of atomic warfare, as they attempt to understand the other.
