Produced and directed by Robert Stone, this critically acclaimed documentary uses declassified footage acquired through the Freedom of Information Act to tell the story of the Bikini islanders, who were removed from their homes by the U.S. government so that their atoll could be used for high-profile atomic bomb tests known as "Operation Crossroads" at the start of the Cold War. Afterwards, the islanders could not safely return home, as the area remained dangerously radioactive for 40 years. Highlights include radio broadcasts from the area, footage of the atomic bomb blasts, and an interview with a U.S. serviceman who observed the tests. Winner of the San Francisco Film Festival's Golden Gate Award, this film aired as an episode of the Emmy award-winning PBS television series The American Experience. ~ Steve Blackburn, Rovi
