Hans-Dieter Grabe: Hiroshima, Nagasaki – Atombombenopfer sagen aus
Hans-Dieter Grabe's documentaries grapple with being able to look something in the eye just where it hurts, and thereby discovering what lies behind the images. In Hiroshima, Nagasaki – Atombombenopfer sagen aus he raises similar questions using photographs that Yoshito Matsushige took as the first photographer on the scene in Hiroshima. Is it allowed or necessary to take pictures in such a situation? The film, which unfolds into a sweeping essay, lets some of these victims who were still able to make statements in 1985 have their say.
