The Day the Sun Fell by Aya Domenig, 78 min / 2015

The Swiss-Japanese filmmaker is the granddaughter of a doctor on duty for the Red Cross during the 1945 atomic bombing of Hiroshima.  She approaches the experience of her deceased grandfather by tracing the lives of a doctor and of former nurses who once shared the same experience. While gathering the memories and present views of these very last survivors, the nuclear disaster in Fukushima strikes and history seems to repeat itself.

For further information on the films please contact: RAI Film Officer, Caterina Sartori,

All are welcome, booking not required.
