Critical Acclaims:

"Hibakusha gives us a fresh and vivid view of an old theme whose importance does not diminish with the passage of time. Everyone, especially people in positions of power and influence, should see this film." Freeman Dyson, Institute for Advanced Study

"This film should play forever" Phil Donahue, celebrated tv host

"Thank you for this deeply engaging film. This is unlike any other Hiroshima/Nagasaki films I have seen. The Hibakusha experience depicted through the little girl's journey is remarkable." Satoko Norimatsu, Vancouver Peace Philosophy Center

Coming Attraction:

August 23, 2017 - Book reading "The Diary of Sacco and Vanzetti" a historical novel by David Rothauser. Location: Encuentro, 9-A Hamilton Place, Boston. Excerpts of the book will be published in a special 90th anniversary Sacco-Vanzetti Journal of the Cuneo Resistance Society, Cuneo, Italy in September 2017. No specific date yet.

Unpublished Review: The Diary of Sacco and Vanzetti is not only beautifully written, but a vital statement on human behavior that impacts precisely what is happening in America today. Your historical novel--actually, a prose documentary--gives both much larger and more minute history of the Sacco-Vanzetti story and the times in which it occurred than any other work I'm aware of. The quotes and letters against the morality and events of the times brings the characters brilliantly to life, not as icons, but as human beings. Given current practices and political philosophies in the U.S. today it becomes a sharp contemporary commentary. The inclusion as principal characters some ignored in most other Sacco-Vanzetti accounts (e.g., Mrs. Glendower Evans) expands the readers' relationship to Vanzetti and Sacco. ~ Robert L. Hilliard
