Through Maruki's fearsome yet beautiful water color illustrations, the film tells the story of a young girl and her family who live through the horrific bombing of Hiroshima. Susan Sarandon lends her talent to this timely story, inspiring children to remember Hiroshima in hopes that it will not be repeated. Nominated for an Academy Award, HELLFIRE: A JOURNEY FROM HIROSHIMA captures the artists Iri and Toshi Maruki in action as they create "one of the world's most powerful and sustained expressions of the effect of the atomic bomb"- the Hiroshima Murals.
Haunted by the memories of Hiroshima after the atomic blast, the Maruki's began a series of monumental paintings depicting what they had seen. With engaging interviews and extended sequences of the Marukis at work, HELLFIRE reveals a message of hope in our nuclear age, and is a reminder of the power of art to render visible and meaningful what still seems unimaginable.
